SWASFT ambulance crews now have access to the patients Summary Care Record via their handheld devices. Unfortunately, the hub where 999 calls are taken do not yet have the same access. For now it is important to update both the SCR AND to inform SWASFT by email; firstname.lastname@example.org so that calls can be managed appropriately.
As of 1 February 2017, South Western Ambulance Service (999) will no longer be able to receive special messages, DNACPR advice or other patient information via Fax. This is because faxing is considered insecure and creates a clinical risk. This means that any of your patient care plans/DNACPR decisions currently being faxed, will now need to be supplied electronically.
Please follow the resource link below to the SWAST website to access the Special patient Information form (this is referred to as 'Clinical alert in the End of Life Shared Care Plan).
