What is Anticipatory Care Planning?
Anticipatory Care Planning is about individual people thinking ahead and understanding their health.
It’s about knowing how to use services better and it helps people make choices about their future care.
Please note: the information on this page, and the other pages in this ACP toolkit, were created before the COVID-19 outbreak and relates to many different care circumstances.
While these resources can help people to plan for the future, it is important to note that they were not developed specifically for COVID-19.
Health and social care staff have access to templates and guidance to support care planning for COVID-19.
Planning ahead can help the individual be more in control and able to manage any changes in their health and wellbeing.
Many people with long term conditions or chronic health problems can benefit from having an Anticipatory Care Plan.
