The National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 makes radical changes to the philosophy and practice of community care and affects all the statutory and independent agencies involved. Policy guidance on care management and assessment makes it clear that local authorities will be expected to produce information about their policies and procedures; the needs they are prepared to meet; the services available; and ways of gaining access to services. Social Services Departments are required to publish a local guide to the principles and workings of their assessment procedure. This book offers advice on how to make such guides useful and relevant to users and carers, to councillors, to local authority staff and to other departments and organizations. Written in an easy-to-read style, this book presents step-by-step information on how to go about producing a guide - its content, method, presentation and style.
