This year brings the introduction of formal care planning and a more planned approach to the way in which we work together to enable our patients to “live well” with their medical conditions. In an attempt to reduce crisis admissions and to improve communication between GP surgeries, Carers, the Ambulance Service and Out of Hours Providers, two percent of our patients will be invited to meet with us to set up a proactive Care Plan with positive steps that can be taken at the earliest signs of any changes in their health.
A Care Plan is a paper document which we draw up together to summarise your care needs and priorities. The idea being that you hold the key information and know what steps to take if anything changes.
An example of a care plan can be found here
