 The development process

Your development will typically take place over a 16-20 week period and we always begin by understanding your requirements, objectives and the way in which your adult social care services are structured. The process outlined below will be project managed by one of our dedicated lead consultants, who will keep things on track to minimise the demand on local resources and make your development as straightforward as possible.

The procedures, practice guidance and tools is competitively priced, but the cost can vary based on your specific requirements, so please talk to us about this.

If a 5 year contract is agreed there is the option to divide the total cost into 5 equal payments across the term of the contract.

It typically takes around 4 months from the date of the initial development meeting to the development of a draft site, with a further 4 weeks for testing and review before going LIVE.

A comprehensive Content Management System (CMS) electronically files all of your local documents. Based on your requirements, links are then made from specific procedures to the different areas of the CMS, creating a seamless integration of the 2 platforms.

Our Editorial Board meets regularly to review changes to legislation, case law and best practice and consider the best way to integrate them into the procedures. Opportunities for planned updates to procedures are provided twice yearly.

A complete copy of every version of your procedures is archived and can be easily accessed whenever you may need it.
