"People with Learning Disabilities have been treated as different for too long. This has led to practices which have focussed on changing people's behaviour instead of seeing challenging behaviour as a product of a normal reaction to extraordinary circumstances, frustrations, pressures and lack of opportunities. The Panorama programme and Winterbourne enquiries have clearly outlined what can happen when people are segregated, congregated and don't have opportunities to live in ordinary houses, in ordinary streets with ordinary opportunities (developed from person centred support which focus on varied lifestyles leading to living life to its potential). The values behind this along with a commitment to Valuing People and the Mansell Reports have meant that all teams within Salford LD services strive to come closer to this goal. The improvement in the quality of life of people is tangible and has resulted in fewer people leaving Salford and people being supported in their own homes. The team in Salford have been dedicated to this goal and are extremely proud that all the work that Dave Williams has done in helping the approach at a local and national level has been recognised."
Dave Clement, Assistant Director, Salford City Council, Shortlisted for Nurse of the Year Award

This programme has taken over 2 years and is the culmination of an enormous amount of hard work and determination by all parties engaged in the COPD QIPP programme in Liverpool and Sefton - Commissioners, GPs, acute and tertiary physicians, the British Lung Foundation and Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust. At the heart of the work was the desire to see COPD patients treated within the community and empowered to manage their own condition, with the support of health professionals working collaboratively to deliver that outcome. Patients now feel fully supported at each point of the care pathway with the Liverpool Community Health Community Respiratory Team as their first point of contact. To be recognised by the Nursing Times by being shortlisted for this award is fantastic."
