How staff, teams and services work together: inadequate

  • Organisations we regulate

E4. How well do staff, teams and services work together within and across organisations to deliver effective care and treatment?

Characteristics of services we would rate as inadequate in this area

Staff and teams provide care in isolation and do not seek support or input from other relevant teams and services. There are significant barriers to effective joint working between teams.

The plans for people's discharge, transition or referral are incomplete or they do not reflect their needs. There are significant delays to discharge, transition or referral. The arrangements for discharge, transition or referral are unclear or discharge happens without having ongoing care arrangements in place.

Unexpected discharges, transfers and transitions are not managed and may place people at risk.
