BSW ICB has launched a suite of tools and resources to help healthcare professionals plan and deliver anticipatory care.
Anticipatory care is proactive, personalised health and care planning for people with complex needs, coordinated through multi-disciplinary teams which can improve outcomes and help reduce demand for same-day appointments and services.
Resources include tools to help with case identification, assessment, care planning, multidisciplinary working, coordinated care, interventions and support.
Dr Mark Luciani, GP Clinical Lead for Ageing Well at BSW ICB said the suit of resources would help clinicians across BSW learn more about delivering this personalised, proactive and joined up care for patients.
“The people who need anticipatory care the most are those who have multiple long-term conditions. We know they are the ones who will benefit the most from this approach and anticipatory care can not only improve the outcomes for these patients, it can help to reduce the demands for same day appointments and services.”

What is Anticipatory Care?
Anticipatory Care is proactive, personalised health and care planning for people with complex needs, co-ordinated and delivered through multi-disciplinary teams across BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW).
Working together across the health and care system to anticipate and plan for people’s health and care requirements can improve outcomes and helps to reduce demand for same-day appointments and services.
In BSW, anticipatory care is aimed at people living with multiple long-term conditions, and centres on what is important to the individual.
Many health and care organisations in BSW are already delivering elements of anticipatory care.
