  • Working across and/or removing boundaries between, primary and secondary care, the NHS and social services.
  • Delivering service improvements within the context of financial and resource constraints (i.e. reflecting the quality/productivity agenda).
  • Empowering clinicians to develop and improve care as new evidence or therapeutic options become available
  • Empowering patients, or their families/carers, to take an active role in decisions about their acute or ongoing care, working in partnership with health and social care professionals.
  • Delivering desired changes in clinical behaviour (referral patterns etc).
  • Reducing the variability of outcomes.
  • Integrating quality and outcome indicators into the pathway and/or service.
  • Using financial and cost information to deliver value for money.
