This Service Framework sets out the standards of care that service users, their carers and wider family can expect to receive in order to help people prevent disease or harm; manage their own health and wellbeing, including understanding how lifestyle affects health and wellbeing; be aware of what types of treatment and care are available within health and social care; and be clear about the standards of treatment and care they can expect to receive. These standards aim to ensure that health and social care services are safe, effective, and person-centered.
