Planned Care and Self-referral

My Planned Care

Anyone waiting for a hospital appointment, operation or treatment, can now access the NHS My Planned Care Patient Digital Platform Midlands – My Planned Care NHS which gives them direct access to the latest average wait time information for their trust, as well as helpful advice and support whilst they wait.

Updated weekly, the site is easy-to-use and is ‘open-access’ so their carer, friends, relatives, and NHS team can also access this information.

We encourage people to look at this site where they may find the information they need before contacting their GP or hospital for an update about any elective procedures they are waiting for.

As well as wait time information, the platform also includes helpful details about how to manage pain, mental health, keeping healthy and accessing financial help and other local support whilst they wait.

It can also help people to prepare for their appointment/operation, including how to make a plan for their care and treatment alongside their healthcare professional.
