Care Planning to Avoid Admission to Hospital
Using a Care Plan to Help Avoid Being Admitted to Hospital
Please click on the link below to view the West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (WLCCG) 'Using a Care Plan to Help Avoid Being Admitted to Hospital' leaflet to support the care planning process.
Increasing numbers of patients have been attending A+E with conditions that could have been dealt with in a timely fashion at the surgery. The practice offers a minor injury service which includes dealing with cuts/burns , sprains/strains and minor head injuries. If a patient feels they need to be seen urgently for assessment we will endeavour to accommodate the request.
Outside of practice opening hours the local Out of Hours service will also provide these services call 111. Please reserve A+E for emergencies and serious injuries only to help save your time and precious NHS resources.
