Background The poster will provide an overview of the Future Planning Project which has achieved nearly 50 000 patient Future Planning records, in its first year, accessible to all urgent care services via the Summary Care Record; at a cost of £160 and time. Future Planning uses clinical systems and information sharing agreements already in place across Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and East Berkshire, to best effect. General Practice staff record information in their own GP clinical system which is automatically uploaded to the Summary Care Record and Hampshire Health Record. It is then easily visible to all community teams, 111, South Coast Ambulance Crews, Out of Hours services, ED and MAU staff.

Method Presented in the form of pictures to show the structure of the Future Planning template and the information flows that now take place across Hampshire. It will also include shots of the website and of the ‘My Wishes’ self complete patient leaflet. It will also outline the future work planned to widen the scope of the Project both to increase local uptake and ideally to cover more CCGs and counties.

Results Will be in the form of graphs that we produce monthly showing, per CCG, the number of GP practices using the Future Planning template, which individual pieces of info/code are being uploaded and the number of accesses to the Summary Care Record by each Trust across our rollout area. Our first success has been a Parkinson’s disease patient who achieved her wish of becoming a brain donor!
