Principal Community Pathways A programme to design and implement new, evidence-based community pathways for adults and older people. Our ambition is high and is matched by the expectations of service users and carers. The new pathways will: • Significantly improve quality for the patient • Double current productive time of community services by redesigning current systems • Enhance the skills of our workforce • Improve ways of working and interfaces with partners • Reduce reliance on inpatient beds and enable cost savings This is not achievable in isolation and to be successful we need it to be part of integrated work with partners
