Making advanced care planning easier - WEL

A new function will be available from 16 November 2020 to GPs working across Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. The new search tool (EARLY) has been developed within GP electronic patient records to help identify people who are likely to be in their last year of life. The attached flyer offers ‘at a glance’ information about the new functionality and the full PDF toolkit on how to use the search function.

The toolkit has been developed to support primary care colleagues to identify and, where appropriate, offer an opportunity to discuss and develop a personalised care plan with those who are likely to be in the last year of life and supports the documentation of the personalised care plan on Coordinate My Care. Early identification will support your patients to have well-planned and coordinated care that is responsive to their changing needs with the aim of improving the experience of care and providing best end-of-life care. Please review the flyer and toolkit for more information.
