Anticipatory Care

What is Anticipatory Care?

Anticipatory Care is proactive, personalised health and care planning for people with complex needs, co-ordinated and delivered through multi-disciplinary teams across BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW).

Working together across the health and care system to anticipate and plan for people’s health and care requirements can improve outcomes and helps to reduce demand for same-day appointments and services.

In BSW, anticipatory care is aimed at people living with multiple long-term conditions, and centres on what is important to the individual.

Many health and care organisations in BSW are already delivering elements of anticipatory care.

This toolkit aims to support BSW’s health and care teams in sharing best practice and increasing anticipatory care across the system.
