What is Person-centred care?
We think you are the most important person in deciding what matters in your health care. Health care professionals should work with you as an equal partner. They will seek to understand you and your carers and to give you a say in your care. They will bring together services to achieve the outcomes which are important to you. Person-centred care planning puts patients and their carers at the heart of all decisions.

What are long term conditions?
Long term conditions are health issues that you may live with every day. These are some of the most common ones: Diabetes, Heart disease, Lung disease, Mental health problems, Asthma, Epilepsy and Persistent Pain and there are many others. You may have one or more of these conditions
How can a Person-centred care plan help you?
Agreeing a care plan with your doctor, practice or community nurse means being able to talk about:

• Your condition(s)
• How your health issues affect your life
• What is most important to you
• What you want to do
• What more you can do for yourself to improve your quality of life if you are given the right level of support

This will help you to manage better and keep your condition(s) under control. It is about being given all the information you need, being listened to, being able to ask questions about your condition(s) and feeling able to say what is really important to you. This will help to ensure that you get the right services and that you know about the wider choices available to meet all your needs, not just the medical ones. It will also help you to have a clear understanding of your medical condition(s) and the impact this may have on your life.
