Ordering new Forms and Patient Leaflets?
These are ordered via Oracle. This is an all Wales ordering system. Go into Shop, key in ‘DNACPR’ and items come up ready to order. The supplier of the books is Office Depot based in Andover. If you go into Office Depot on Oracle it is ‘Vicking Printers’ at present.
All Wales DNACPR policy.
There will be an overlap in each health board with existing policy and forms being phased out, and hence there will be a grace period for the implementation process to be full completed by autumn 2015 (1st Oct) where it is expected that all Health Boards will have fully moved over to the new policy and associated form.
Dr Paul Buss explains the All Wales DNACPR policy:
“It is vital that we all engage with vital decisions about our own health and care. These resources encourage good conversations about this important decision, helping healthcare professionals to empower patients and their families to share decision making and make good,informed choices.”
