Continuity of care

Continuity of care can mean different things for patients and doctors. In primary care it may be about patients with a long term condition, seeing a GP they trust and who understands their on-going needs. In hospital it may be about managing an effective handover from one shift to another, or ensuring that your patients are effectively discharged.

We’re focussing on this theme just following the annual peak changeover period for trainee doctors across the UK – and a time when continuity of care can be stressful.

We’ve gathered signposts, guidance, articles and other resources to help support you in meeting patients’ expectations.
