A Care Plan is a written plan of management developed by your GP and practice nurse in consultation with you. It is a written set of information about what you need in managing your medical condition.

Care Plan Reviews
Once a plan is in place, it should be regularly reviewed by your GP. This is an important part of the plan cycle, where you with your GP and practice nurse check that your goals are been met and agree on any changes that you may require. A Care Plan Review is usually undertaken every 6 months. All Care Plan Reviews are bulk billed by your GP. There will be no charge for these services.
