What is the role of the lead professional?
The role of lead professional must be taken on by one of the professionals working with the family, and where possible, one who the family has chosen.
All other professionals must share information appropriately and ensure that the lead professional is kept up to date.
The lead professional will convene the first ‘team around the family’ meeting, and set the next review meeting.
There should be just one lead professional for the whole family. However, it is of course everyone’s responsibility to work with the whole family.
