The new service is inclusive, locally accountable and Bristol focussed, designed to meet the diverse needs of Bristol’s population.

It aims to:

  • Work with patients to promote resilience and wellbeing within service design and delivery
  • Deliver high quality services regardless of age
  • Consider the wider context of the patient
  • Recognise and deal with safeguarding issues
  • Focus on patient outcomes rather than activity (i.e. results rather than numbers)
  • Eliminate ‘bounce’ – a needs led and ‘yes’ service
