Do you have experience of being involved in discussion about your plan of care either in a hospital setting or in the community or are you a family member or carer who has been involved in discussions about a plan of care for someone close to you or are you a member of healthcare staff who is involved in discussions with patients their family or carer about planning their care. If so, please read on…
One of our quality ambitions in the NHSGGC Healthcare Quality Strategy: Pursuing Excellence (2019) is to develop a board wide set of core principles for person centred care planning.
A care plan should describe the care, treatment and interventions that a person should receive, to ensure that they get the right care at the right time. It is a written record of needs (either electronic or paper-based), actions and responsibilities, which can be used and understood by individuals receiving care, their family, carers and the staff providing care.
We would like to invite you to complete a short survey to share your experiences, reflections, thoughts and ideas to help inform learning and the development of a small set of core principles to support a consistent approach to person centred care planning and quality of care. Once developed these principles will be used across all care settings.
The survey should take approximately 10 minutes of your time to complete.
To complete the survey please click here. The survey will be open until Sunday 20 June.
Your help, support and willingness to share your experiences with us to improve quality of care is greatly appreciated.
