Advance Care Planning

An advance care plan helps you to consider and record your future care wishes, 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 Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has produced a form and information booklets 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 is to be shared with those who are important to you, your GP and any other health professionals involved in your care.

There is also information on advance care planning information for inpatients and care homes as well as advance care planning information for the public and outpatients found here.
