Helpful documents for PLAN teams

If you'd like ideas on how to create a patient leaflet or tips on helping your team improve its self -review responses, see the helpful documents below.

The 'Northumberland Liaison Psychiatry and Self-Harm team' at Greenacres kindly provided us with the patient information template. This can be amended with your own team information and given to patients after an assessment.

The 'Older Adult Psychiatry liaison service' at the Royal London Hospital provided us with the discharge letter template, which can be used to copy in information about an assessment to the patient, the hospital consultant and the patient's GP. Again, this can be amended as necessary.
