    5. Identify this group of patients ie using the register • Assess for their main needs, both physical and psychosocial, and that of the carers • Plan ahead for problems, including out of hours (see model for good practice)

The aims of the meetings are to improve: • the flow of information • advanced planning /pro-active care and • measurement and audit, to clarify areas for improvement in future • at patient, practice, PCT and Network level

    7. GSF – C2 Each PHCT has a nominated co-ordinator for palliative care (e.g District nurse/manager/practice nurse) to ensure good organisation and co-ordination of care in the practice by overseeing the process, i.e. • a) maintaining the register, care plans, symptom sheets ,handover forms, audit data, etc. • b) organising PHCT meetings for discussion, planning, case analysis, education, etc. • c) using checklists, tools and protocols to cover all areas of care. eg PACA scale, PEPSI COLA, end-of-life care etc
