Standard 6: Clinical Handover

Clinical handover is a process used by your doctors, nurses and allied healthcare providers to ensure important information about your care and treatment is shared. We encourage our patients and their families to be involved in this process. We use a number of tools to facilitate these processes including preadmission assessments, documentation of your medical history, checklists and clinical pathways. For overnight stays, staff will encourage you and your family to assist in planning and delivering your care. On discharge we will provide a discharge summary for your GP so they are aware of the care and treatment you have received.
