Respect and Dignity Category

The Respect and Dignity category respects the rights and choices of people who use our services and places the needs of people who use our services and their carers at the core of service planning and delivery, and support person­ centred approaches to care. To be fair in our decisions and our actions, reflecting this in our policies and our practice. Work in partnership across professions, services, organisations and communities to maximise the potential for health improvement and achieve the best use of resources through joined up approaches. Recognise the contributions of staff, users, carers, volunteers and the community.
