With more people living with long-term conditions, practical shared care and support planning becomes a very important part of GP work.
At Grovelands Medical Centre, we are in the process of creating a register of patients with long term conditions called ‘Supportive Care’. The aim of this register is to provide relevant patients and families with safe, appropriate care that is consistent with their wishes. The register is also a way to enable effective communication among professionals.
For more information please read ‘Planning for your future’ guide, which is available here planning_for_your_future_leaflet for patients, the website here , or please ask at the surgery for a copy of the guide. Alternatively make an appointment to discuss with your doctor.
