Person-centred thinking is a set of values, skills and tools used to personalise the health and social care services that an individual receives and aid person-centred planning.

Person-centred planning is a set of approaches designed to help an individual plan their life and the support they receive.

Person-centred reviews are regular (usually annual but can be more frequent) reviews of an individual’s life and the support they receive and looks at what is working and what is not working and if any changes need to be made.
