Nice | Older people with social needs and multiple long-term conditions

This is a new guideline from NICE on caring for people with both social needs and long term conditions. It really needs to be read after their other recent publication on home care (or see my post for a summary).

There are a few bits that will impact on us.

Assessing social care needs

When it becomes clear that a patient is likely to need social care or support, refer them for a needs assessment.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
