The NHS has announced the launch of a new online platform – My Planned Care – which gives patients waiting for care the opportunity to check waiting lists and access the support they need, at the touch of a button.
The new platform aims to empower patients, by improving transparency and providing them with access to a range of personalised resources whilst they are on the waiting list. There are plans to expand the platform in the coming weeks and months, however patients accessing the service can already see information relating to waiting times at their local hospitals.
It is hoped that by providing patients with clear guidance about waiting times and relevant information which is specific to their condition, they will be in a better position to support their own healthcare journey.
Medinet is a leading provider of dedicated, specialist clinical teams delivering additional elective care to NHS providers.
We are committed to helping the NHS reduce elective care backlogs. The introduction of tools such as My Planned Care, in addition to collaboration with private sector partners, will help the NHS reduce waiting lists and #EndTheWait for people across England who are patiently waiting for care.
