Advance Care Planning

Deciding Right - Planning your care in advance

Planning your care in advance involves a process of discussion between you and the people who provide care for you eg your doctors, nurses, social worker, family and friends.

Taking part in this process gives you the opportunity to express some views, preferences and wishes about your future care so that they can be taken into account if you were unable to make your own decisions at some point in the future.

The advance care planning involves:

1.  Opening the discussion

2.  Exploring your options

3.  Identifying your wishes and preferences

4.  Refusing specific treatment

5.  Identifying who you would like to be consulted on your behalf

6.  Letting people know your wishes

Please make an appointment to see your GP if you would like to discuss this further.The following websites have some useful information:
