We include your friends and family in care planning, with
your agreement, and perform carer assessments to reflect their role as
significant contributors to the care plan. We encourage your nearest relatives
and next of kin to participate in decisions made with you about your care,
and invite them to formal reviews as well as supporting the
interventions described as part of the Care Programme Approach.
People already being treated by us should call us at the IDT in the first instance, or you may have an agreed plan in place where you have agreed the actions you will take when you are experiencing difficulties.
