Fife Health and Social Care Partnership Holistic Needs Assessment Privacy Notice

Levenmouth Test of Change - supporting people to live well with long term conditions.

When you contact Fife Health and Social Care Partnership (or a referral is made on your behalf with your verbal consent) to request an appointment to discuss “what is important to you”, a holistic needs assessment will be completed.

This assessment tool was developed by Macmillan Cancer Support and is being delivered by your care provider, Fife Council. The assessment tool facilitates a conversation between yourself and the key worker to explore the social, emotional and practical impacts that your long-term illness may have. This conversation results in a personalised care and support plan identifying what is important to you. The completed personalised care and support plan is shared with you and the referring agency.

This guide covers the sharing of information between:

Fife Council

NHS Fife

Macmillan Cancer Support

and those agencies, such as Fife Carers Centre, Fife Forum etc. who have contracts with Fife Council or NHS Fife to provide care and support services.
