Skills mix

A good skills mix should be sought when recruiting the staff. The team should be multidisciplinary and include nurses, social workers, support workers, occupational therapists, psychologists and medics whose skills will help serve the local population best. For example, staff may be recruited based on specific skills around dual diagnosis. The team should reflect the local population in terms of race representation, major local languages and ethnicity.
