Unit 206

1. A working relationship differs from others because we have to maintain a professional distance. The other relationships that we have from family to friends are more intimate and apart from family, are usually ones that we choose ourselves. We know each other and have respect for each other. With a working relationship, it is based around our work and a more formal relationship, it is not as easy going. It doesn’t mean that we can’t make friends, but the relationship needs to be professional and respectful to all that we work with and work alongside. This is to maintain the highest level of care that we give to our service users. We all have a part to play in maintaining a positive working relationship with each other.

This is so that the nurse can document it on the care plan and also so that they can refer the person on to receive the correct help. The nurses will also hand over any relevant information to us so that we can provide high class care.

I also work with the junior doctors quite closely and they will come and talk to us about a patient to get our opinion on how they are eating and drinking and other things as needed. They might also ask us to do things as well, such as a ward test urine sample.

In all of the above relationships, there is a lot of mutual respect. We all respect each others roles and how they play a part in the well-being and care of the patient.

3. It is really important to adhere to our job description, so that we are doing what we are trained for and not putting the patient at risk of harm. Employers will know the skills they need from workers to do a specific job. If you do something that is not within your job description may mean that you are doing someone else’s job. If you have not been trained to do something, and then do it and do it wrong, you are not only putting yourself at risk, but others, and this goes against the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. You could face legal action if you do something that you are not trained to do and it goes wrong.

4. Partnership working in health care is important. More than one person will be involved in the patient’s care. It will be dependent on what the patient needs, but some of the people that may be involved are nurses, carers, district nurses, practice nurses, GP’s, social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, chiropodists, audiologists, optometrist, dieticians, families and other specialists. It is important to get input from everyone involved to meet the patient’s needs and to get an overall picture of what is going on.
