This brief document provides an overview of what person-centred care is and why it is important.  It sets out how person-centred care is a way of thinking and doing things that sees the people using health and social services as equal partners in planning, developing and monitoring care to make sure it meets their needs and argues that it is a key component of developing high quality healthcare.

It describes nine aspects of person-centred care:

  • respecting people’s values and putting people at the centre of care
  • taking into account people’s preferences and expressed needs
  • coordinating and integrating care
  • working together to make sure there is good communication, information and education
  • making sure people are physically comfortable and safe
  • emotional support
  • involving family and friends
  • making sure there is continuity between and within services
  • and making sure people have access to appropriate care when they need it

It briefly sets out the policy framework for person-centred care as well as the evidence for a more person-centred approach to services, including the potential to improve people’s health and reduce the burden on services.  It describes four outcomes that it hopes more person-centred care will achieve:

  • improve the quality of the services available
  • help people get the care they need when they need it
  • help people be more active in looking after themselves
  • and reduce some of the pressure on health and social services

My name is Emily Brian from United State of America. I was diagnosed with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) in 2016 and I tried all possible means to get cured but all to no avail until I saw a post in a health forum about a herbal doctor called DR. OCUSODO from Africa who prepare herbal medicine to cure all kind of diseases including Herpes virus. At first, I doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try. When I contacted this herbal doctor via his email, I explained my predicament to him and he assured me that all will be well. He gave me 100% assurance that my herpes will be cured withing 2 weeks with the help of his herbal medicine. After all preparation has been made and I got the cure, I used it as prescribed by the herbal doctor and after I finished taking the medicine, I went to the hospital to do TEST and to my greatest surprise, I tested negative to Hepatitis B Virus just as he said it will be within 2 weeks of usage. Do not loose hope too soon.

HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS TYPE 2 CURE I am from USA i was diagnosed with HSV TPYE 2 while I was pregnant .I cried for days. I was devastated and looking up info on it just made it worse. I don't know how long I have had it for. I don't know if my partner has it or if he was the one who transferred it to me. I had one outbreak while pregnant. That's how I found out I had the virus. I started taking and antiviral and took it everyday twice a day to make sure I wasn't able to get an outbreak. I debated whether I wanted to have my daughter natural or c- section. I was terrified. Stress wasn't helping my situation. I ended up having her natural and she is a beautiful healthy 2 month old baby girl. I try not to think about me having the virus because of my depression i couldn't. so I have to focus more on how to get rid of HSV TPYE 2 because i don't want anything to happen to my daughter and thank God she was born fine. i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like acyclovir, Zovirax, and (valacyclovir)Valtrex without without get rid of my virus. one day i decide to surf the internet for cure so i saw a testimony total cure of HERPES by Dr. EHIAGWINA with NATURAL HERBS so i pick up the email Address: ehiagwinaherbalhome@gmail.com and contact he an hour later he reply explain to me how am going to get the herbs and how am going to use it to cure my virus i give a try believe me it work perfectly i used it within seven days now am tested negative i am free from the virus thanks Doc. for so many passing through this contact Dr. EHIAGWINA to help you get rid of the virus. here is his email address: ehiagwinaherbalhome@gmail.com you can also call or add him on whats app +2348162084504 He can as well cure so many diseases like........... 1.

I see no reasons to say that God is NOT faithful. He saved me from all evil and diseases. I carried the HERPES virus for nine years and some months. When my blood test result came out, I was HSV1&2 positive, at first it wasn't a serious thing. I manage to live with it and the disgrace but after then I saw the bad effect of the virus in my body and life, so I went on a discovering for cure of the virus and with the help of GOD I found one with Dr IKHUORIA who cured me using HERBAL concoction that I used for 21 days. I'm sharing this because I want many to benefit from this blessing. Here is his email:ikhuoriaherbalredemption@gmail.com. contact him, he got cure for STDs/STIs.
