Anticipatory Care Planning for COVID-19

Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) has developed a new template document to specifically support Anticipatory Care Planning (ACP) conversations in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak.  HIS worked with the Scottish Government and national stakeholders to develop this new national resource.

The COVID-19 ACP template is for use by health and social care staff to support individuals who would benefit from ACP. It is not designed for sole use by individuals and their families without guidance.

Please visit to download the template and find additional information relating to ACP support.
