A continuous period of care (including assessment for care) for a PERSON for an illness or condition involving health and possibly other agencies which has been nationally targeted and prioritised as requiring an organised and cohesive programme or regime of care. Overall management and coordination of the care will be the solely led responsibility of a specific HEALTH CARE PROVIDER, or in the case of equally shared responsibility, the jointly led responsibility of two or more HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS. Actual treatment associated with the programme or regime of care may be delivered by the responsible HEALTH CARE PROVIDER or by other HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS.
