What is Personalised Care?
Personalised Care is where you have a right to discuss and decide with your doctor, nurse or any healthcare professional the best choice of treatment that will help you. You have the choice and control over your health as you do in every other aspect of your life.
Did you know you can “self-refer”? This means you can contact a healthcare service to ask for treatment without having to go to your GP. You can ask someone to do this for you.
What is the BLMK Directory of Personalised Care & Information?
Is a list that contains courses and information for all residents and healthcare professionals of Bedfordshire Luton & Milton Keynes (BLMK). The information split by topics that are all part of personalised care some of which are applicable to a particular audience. The topics are:
- Health Literacy
- Patient Activation Measure
- Personal Health
- Shared Decision Making
- Social Prescribing
This directory differs to the Care Courses & Information Directory as it includes information for young people as well as adults who live with a condition or have symptoms. We have split the intended audience into three groups:
- All adults and young people living in Bedfordshire, Luton or Milton Keynes. Unpaid carers (family, friends), volunteers and personal assistants.
- Front line registered and unregistered staff in all health (NHS, Community, Primary Care) and social care environments. This includes health improvement personnel, nurses, practitioners, pharmacists and patient engagement organisations.
- Local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, health and wellbeing boards responsible for strategic planning and commissioning as well as care providers.
