Our Senior Management Team
ASC Healthcare is a dedicated provider of services for adults with a learning disability and/or asc. Our Senior Management Team, known and acknowledged for their wealth of experience and knowledge within the health and social care sectors, particularly in the development and delivery of services for people with learning disability and/or asc were originally brought together in December 2012.
The team have undertaken a wide ranging and strategic review of existing specialist provision for people with a learning disability and/or asc and the outcome of this coupled with professional experience, their innovation and creativity has led to their development of a hospital model service which aims to move away from the more traditional existing care regimes and is closely aligned to the type of service demanded today by individuals with a learning disability and/or asc, their families, commissioners and regulators. This is further emphasised in our mission statement below:
“Through our unique delivery of a social and clinical partnership model, we will actively support individuals to develop a range of life skills and functional strategies. These will allow individuals to live the life they want to live now and in the future.
We recognise and endorse the philosophy that a hospital is not a home, but a place for extra support, during a critical time in a person’s lifetime. The emphasis of our work from point of referral will always focus on discharge preparation”.
