Government sets out plans for another online platform.
Patients and their carers will be able to access tailored information from ‘My Planned Care’ ahead of planned surgeries including information on waiting times for their provider.
They will also be able to better understand their expected wait and clinicians will be able to link patients to the most appropriate personalised support in preparation for their surgery.
This could include advice on prevention services such as stop smoking or diet and exercise plans, to make sure they are fighting fit for surgery to reduce cancellations, prevent deterioration and help patients recover as quickly as possible.
The platform to be launched via NHS.UK later this month
