Advance Care Planning

An advance care plan helps you to consider and record what matters most to you, in the event that you are unable to communicate them. This can include any aspect of your future care, such as how and where you wish to be cared for, as well as any treatments you might want to avoid, alongside practical considerations such as who you would trust to make decisions on your behalf.

Not everyone will choose to think about this and that is fine. However, planning ahead improves the chance of receiving the care you want, and can reduce stress and anxiety amongst those who are important to you.


The York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has produced information to guide you through the process.

Please click here for more information.

The advance care plan is a document for you to fill in your future wishes. This form is to be shared with those who are important to you, your GP and any other health professionals involved in your care.

Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
