Person Centred Care Planning
In 2017/18 the Practice will be inviting certain patients to be involved in the development of Patient Centred Care Plans. This page will try and give you some insight into this new scheme and what to expect if you are invited.
What is Person Centred Care?
These care plans are focused on making you the most important person in deciding what matters in your health care. Our nurses will work with you to understand your specific needs and give you a say in your care. Through the development of an individualised care plan, patients can then use this to increase their own independence and self-care.
What does self-care mean?
We all self-care every day without realising it; for example, taking medicines properly and eating well. Often patients are able to improve their quality of life by making small lifestyle changes. This is where increasing self-care comes in. Understanding and getting support for these small changes can mean you can manage your condition better and stay well for longer.
Who will be invited?
The Practice has decided to roll-out this scheme to all our registered diabetes patients. These patients will be sent a short booklet to complete along with their annual diabetic recall letter. If you receive this letter and wish to participate, you simply need to complete the booklet and take to your Practice Nurse during you review appointment.
If you do not wish to participate then you do not have to complete the booklet and your Practice Nurse will complete your annual diabetic review as normal.
