General practice encouraged to complete NSW Ambulance Authorised Care Plans by April

20 March 2020

As the Easter public holidays approach (9-14 April 2020), early identification and completion of NSW Ambulance Authorised Care Plans is key to ensuring patients with a life-limiting illness receive the best possible care. 

Authorised Care Plans enable paramedics to provide the care detailed in a patient’s plan.

The cut-off date for processing plans that may be required during the Easter holiday period is Friday 3 April 2020.

Current versions of the different Authorised Care Plans and supporting documents are available on NSW Ambulance website here.
