It also supports practitioners who carry out assessments and provide early help and interventions to children, young people, parents and carers.
This guideline covers referral and assessment for intermediate care and how to deliver the service. Intermediate care is a multidisciplinary service that helps people to be as independent as possible.

It covers identifying changing needs, planning for the future, and delivering services including health, social care and housing.

This guideline covers decision-making in people 16 years and over who may lack capacity now or in the future. It aims to help health and social care practitioners support people to make their own decisions where they have the capacity to do so. It also helps practitioners to keep people who lack capacity at the centre of the decision-making process.
