The EHCH model moves away from traditional reactive models of care delivery towards proactive care that is centred on the needs of individuals, their families, care home staff and the wider multi professional team providing services to residents.  This high- quality complex care can only be achieved through a whole system collaborative approach which extends to people in their own homes, extra care housing, learning disability and mental health care homes.
