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 am so glad and grateful for being a member of NASGP's BOB locum chambers. I started with them in a critical period of my career as I was a newly-qualified GP, looking for work in a new area with a new virus hardly hitting the world and the jobs market.

Richard and Ali's help was a godsend. They introduced me to locum work in a friendly and kind manner, provided valuable support and excellent service through the ever-improving LocumDeck and NASGP website. With the help of the chambers, I received a face to face tutorial on Emis (I trained on SystmOne) and my online profile was promoted on a growing network of GP practices throughout Buckinghamshire, Oxford and Berkshire.

I was able to work in different GP practices with different staff and patient demographics, massively increasing my clinical experience, resilience and communication skills.

It also helped me funnelling down all the job offers I received through my locum work until I recently agreed for a salaried position in a GP practice that I love working at. "
