Aims / Objectives
Reduction in unwanted procedures and attendance
Benefit To Health Service
There is actual and research evidence suggesting that for every citizen in possession of an ECACP the health system will save £2,100 in a health crisis.
Organisational Involvement Required
We would ask the organisation to get all its staff to fill in an ECACP. We would require advocacy from staff. We would need to be able to send invites digitally either by mobile or email to a specified cohort of citizens.
