Legacy Care Plan (without ReSPECT)

This page contains a generic version of the Child and Young Person’s Advance Care Plan document for recording the outcome of advance planning discussions. Please note, that at present this is an old format of the care plan and a new version of the care plan is available for the Advance Care Plan (with ReSPECT) versions only.

It is recommended that you use this website when creating a new care plan (rather than creating a template and working from that).  Thus, ensuring you are always using the latest version.

At present these Care Plans without ReSPECT are still available on this website.  However, it is expected that organisations move to use the nationally recognise and NICE approved Advance Care Plan with ReSPECT.  Found here: Advance Care Plan (with ReSPECT)

The forms are available in formats suitable for completion both electronically and by hand: The ‘Printable Version’ is a simple pdf file that may be printed out or passed to a local printers to be printed out as a booklet to be filled in by hand. There are then two versions of the electronic document written in Microsoft Word. The version ‘with Macro’ should be tried first as this has code embedded in it that will automatically copy through demographic details and update the pages numbers if the boxes are expanded when the form is filled in. However this may not be compatible with local legacy versions of word. If this is the case please download the version ‘without Macro’ which is exactly the same form but without the added (incompatible) features.
