Personalised Care Planning

As part of the drive to improve clinical outcomes and experiences for patients with long term conditions and maximise the use of resources, Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group has been working with a locally based healthcare solutions company, In Touch With Health, to develop an electronic care planning resource – My Self Care Plan.

My Self Care Plan provides a patient-owned approach to care planning that will help patients to consider in advance of their appointment what health and “lifestyle” goals they would like to achieve, resulting in a more collaborative and productive care planning session.

Three practices are being supported as early adopters of this new initiative: Phoenix and St Peter’s Road Surgeries in Cirencester and Regent Street Surgery in Stonehouse.

Although web-based, My Self Care Plan is also available in a booklet format.
