Advance care planning for everyone
What is advance care planning?
Advance care planning is a series of steps you can take to help you make Plans for your medical Care in Advance.
Advance care planning aims to keep you involved in your medical decisions, both now and in the future, whether you are healthy or have an illness. Advance care planning is especially important when you become so unwell that you can no longer speak for yourself, because, having created a plan in advance, your doctors and family can understand how you would like to be cared for.
