This online tool is aimed at commissioners, planners, clinicians and practitioners across the health and social care system grappling with the complex changes needed to deliver person-centred, coordinated care. Through a series of case study scenarios developed with clinicians, social care professionals, voluntary sector partners and people with lived experience, it demonstrates how different journeys through personalised care and support planning (PCSP) could look for people with multiple long term conditions, mental health problems, learning disabilities and dementia when a radical new approach is embraced
