The information prescriptions system was implemented in the Trust throughout cancer services in September 2011.
Information prescriptions provide tailored, personalised information designed to meet your needs at any point of your journey.
Information prescriptions can be offered to anyone with a long-term condition or social care need, in consultation with a health or social care professional. They guide you to relevant and reliable sources of information to allow them to feel more in control and better able to manage their condition and maintain their independence.
Information prescriptions can be used as a source of key information on conditions, services and care that is seamlessly and formally integrated into the care process. They provide a way for organisations to meet your rights to information to support choice and to enable you to be involved in discussions and decisions about your care, as set out in the NHS Constitution.
