Shared Decision Making

Shared decision making (SDM) is the conversation that happens between a patient and their health professional to reach a healthcare choice together. This conversation needs patients and professionals to understand what is important to the other person when choosing a treatment. Patient Decision Aids are specially designed information resources that help people make decisions about difficult healthcare options.

NHS Continuing Healthcare Refreshed Redress Guidance

 The NHS Continuing Healthcare Refreshed Redress Guidance can be found here.

 The refreshed Guidance maintains the same basic principles of fairness that have always applied; that is to ensure that individuals are put back in the financial position that they should have been in whilst ensuring that individuals do not gain from the public purse. The Guidance does not remove the requirement for CCGs to consider the specific circumstances of each individual case when determining the appropriate level of redress.

 Now published, this Guidance applies with immediate effect from the date of publication, and will apply to cases where an eligibility decision for NHS CHC has been made and the need for redress has been identified by the CCG. The PHSO is aware that this Guidance has been developed.
