Advance Care Plan

Developing an Advance Care Plan means making people aware of your preferences when you approach the last stages of your life. The people that need to know about your ACP may include your spouse, children, friends, nursing team and GP.

An ACP allows to you to document your wishes (making things simpler for those looking after you) , including your feelings about your religious or spiritual beliefs, where you would like to be looked after and personal preferences such as having a shower rather than a bath or sleeping with a light on. Perhaps you have concerns about pets or other practical issues or concerns.
