How the network helps services

  • We involve and listen to the people on the frontline, including staff from all professional backgrounds, service users and their carers and partner organisations.  At a local level, this means engaging people in the review of their own service, and at a national level in how the network develops.
  • We promote sharing of best practice as services are engaged with a network of peers, providing a forum for advice and information sharing.
  • We support professional development as members can sign up to receive lead reviewer training and are able to improve their professional practice.
  • We celebrate good practice and the achievements of staff as they are identified through the review process.
  • Our process helps to build dialogue with referrers, partner agencies and commissioners.
  • Learning and innovations arising from the process are often spread beyond the participating service to other services within the organisation.
