Improving service quality through linked services development

Author:
BROADSHAW Jill
Journal article citation:
Tizard Learning Disability Review, 6(4), October 2001, pp.12-18.
Publisher:
Emerald

The University Affiliated Programme (UAP) aims to improve service quality by working in partnership with local services. This article reports on the establishment and development of linked services: three services for people with learning disabilities, living in small community houses that opened in late 1999 and early 2000. The focus of resources on a small number of linked services was designed to maximise the effectiveness of the involvement of the Tizard Centre, along with the Subscriber Network. It was intended that work in the linked services would be disseminated through this network. The UAP has worked with service users and providers since 1996, during which time users have moved from long-stay NHS hospital to community services. The service provider is also now a private organisation. The article outlines some of the projects which have been introduced or developed in these linked services and discusses some of the issues that have arisen while working in partnership with them. The benefits of working through a UAP will also be identified.
