What matters? – the testimony It’s so hard to get an appointment I don’t know what’s going on The receptionist wouldn’t even make eye contact What are my choices? I need to discuss it with my daughter I’m not happy about the way they spoke to my Mum I just want to get on with life I’m fed up being passed from pillar to post I know what to do if things change or go wrong Macmillan were fantastic in helping explain about my benefits Joining the walking group has made such a difference
What matters? – the things we talk less about pain exhaustion fear anxiety depression anger hopelessness confusion loneliness
Traditional practice styles…… Create dependency Discourage self-care Ignore preferences Undermine confidence Do not encourage healthy behaviours Lead to fragmented care
Informed, engaged patients Have the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their own health and healthcare, And they…… Make healthy lifestyle choices Make informed and personally relevant decisions about their treatment and care Stick with treatment regimes Experience fewer adverse events Use less costly healthcare With thanks to Angela Coulter

Person centred coordinated care “I can plan my care with people who work together to understand me and my carer(s), allow me control, and bring together services to achieve the outcomes important to me.” Information My goals/outcomes Communication Decision making Care planning Transitions
Care planning I work with my team to agree a care and support plan. I know what is in my care and support plan. I know what to do if things change or go wrong. I have as much control of planning my care and support as I want. I can decide the kind of support I need and how to receive it. I have regular reviews of my care and treatment, and of my care and support plan. I have systems in place to get help at an early stage to avoid a crisis.
Communication I tell my story once. I am listened to about what works for me, in my life. I am always kept informed about what the next steps will be. The professionals involved with my care talk to each other. We all work as a team. I always know who is coordinating my care. I have one first point of contact. They understand both me and my condition(s). I can go to them with questions at any time.
Information I have the information, and support to use it, that I need to make decisions and choices I have information, and support to use it, that helps me manage my condition(s). I can see my health and care records at any time. I can decide who to share them with. I can correct any mistakes in the information. I am told about the other services that are available to someone in my circumstances, including support organisations.
Decision-making I am as involved in discussions and decisions about my care, support and treatment as I want to be. My family or carer is also involved in these decisions as much as I want them to be. I have help to make informed choices if I need and want it. I know the amount of money available to me for care and support needs, and I can determine how this is used (whether it’s my own money, direct payment, or a ‘personal budget’ from the council or NHS).
