My Wishes and Values

To help my SDM if they need to make healthcare decisions for me in the future

  • ACP gives those around you the confidence to make decisions on your behalf, helps reduce their anxiety and allows them to better understand and honour your wishes.
  • In having ACP conversations and sharing this information, your rights as a patient will be respected when you are mentally incapable because your SDM(s) will know what is important to you.
  • Your SDM(s) will be prepared to make decisions for you in the way that you would want. Below are some questions you can ask yourself to help you think about these conversations.
  • Use this form to write down some of your thoughts. Save your answers before you print.
