Preparing for Tomorrow Patient Engagement Event
Ealing CCG’s Advance Care Planning (ACP) programme has partnered with Argyle Surgery in Ealing to host the “Preparing for Tomorrow” patient engagement event on Friday 22 November at 1pm to 4pm. The purpose of the event is to:
- Raise awareness of the importance of advance care planning for patients, families and carers
- Ensure individuals and families have the opportunity to engage in planning for their future
- To share with patients and families the resources available to help them make the best plan for the future
- To give participants the opportunity to consider what is important in advance care planning and why, and to highlight the consequences of not attending to things in advance.
The event will include information stalls hosted by Macmillan, Marie Curie, Age UK, Ealing Community Transport, MyCOPD, Marie Curie, O’Dwyers Funeral Directors, Prince Evans Solicitors, Compassion in Dying and Thames Carers Trust. A panel discussion will follow where patients, relatives, carers and staff will be provided with information on advance directives, lasting powers of attorney, deputyship, services in the community and creating care plans. The event will take place at St Stephen’s Church Hall, St Stephen’s Road, Ealing, W13 8HB
