MacIntyre's Families Podcast - Episode 8 Health Recording
In this episode of our MacIntyre Families Podcast, Sarah Ormston MacIntyre’s Health, Dementia and Wellbeing Manager talks about the NHS Anticipatory Care Calendar. MacIntyre is committed to improving health outcomes for people with a learning disability and reducing inequalities that exist in our communities and society. We are doing several things within MacIntyre to achieve this, but one way we are doing this was to introduce and use The NHS’s Anticipatory Care Calendar (Health Calendar) which provides an innovative approach to assessing health on a daily basis and is designed to alert social care staff to changes (even the most subtle) noticed in a person’s health. The calendar also provides clear directions about accessing care. We have taken a ‘whole organisational approach’ to successfully empower our social care staff to develop a high standard of health record keeping, monitor health changes and ensuring people access NHS Screening Programmes and Primary Care services. We want to bring the Anticipatory Care Calendar to life, raise awareness of this great resource and to share with you the benefits it brings people.
