   What we have already done

Central and South Denbighshire Cluster Action Plan 2016-17

The ANP serving the cluster’s care home patients is now well established and working well. This service is reducing the impact on Primary Care, reducing unscheduled admissions to hospital and also contributing to enabling patients to have end of life care in their place of choice. The ANP will also being to support the roll out of Treatment Escalation Plans to further contribute to end of life care for the patients of the cluster. An evaluation of this service will be carried out this year to provide evidence of the benefits gained since the service began.

Information screens have now been installed in all practices across the cluster, the screens promote the Social Prescribing Agenda by providing key health and social care information and the ability to navigate patients to appropriate services
