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 started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
