Care Plans for Vulnerable Adults at Hounslow GP Practices Review - December 2016 Report

This review will examines the progress that local Practices in Hounslow have been making towards achieving the Hounslow Clinical Commissioning Group’s aim to introduce proactive Care Plans for some of the more Vulnerable Adults in each of the Practices with GPs as pivotal points in the care and management of the health of these patients to help them stay out of hospital, maximise patient involvement and reduce unnecessary admissions.

This review of Care Plans in Hounslow aims to connect with a cross-section of General Practices in various parts of the borough to directly obtain their response on developing proactive Care Plans for vulnerable adults, to understand how they have been working to achieve this aim, what challenges/difficulties they have been facing, what progress they have made so far, what their expectations are regarding outcomes and what suggestions or ideas they might have for the future to improve this initiative.

The review also attempts to establish links with relevant patients whose Care Plans have been developed by their GPs to ascertain if and in what way/s they had been involved in the development of their Care Plans and to gather any useful suggestions/ recommendations for improvement based on their experience of the Care planning process and its execution.

The overall aim was to focus on the experience of Care Planning and implementing Care Plans from relevant patients/users and from local Practices; to find out what they understand about Care Plans and also gain feedback from both patients/users and local Practice GPs on how they might like to improve or change in how Care Plans are developed and implemented.
