Advanced Care Planning COVID-19
Guidance notes for completing ‘My COVID-19 Advance Care Plan’
What is a COVID-19 Advance Care Plan?
A page of information developed by you, with your family or friends (or somebody else if you need help). It outlines the decisions you have made about your treatment and the support you need if you develop severe COVID-19 symptoms and need to contact emergency services or be admitted to hospital. In these circumstances you are likely to be separated from people who usually support you or speak on your behalf, or COVID-19 may make you too breathless to speak. This plan is a way to capture and share, in an urgent situation, the advance decisions you have made around the care and treatment you would like.
What information is required for a COVID-19 Advance Care Plan?
You only need to note down brief information about the key things you want
people to know under each question.
