Making your wishes known
Advance Decisions/Advance Statements (advanced directive)
Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has developed this leaflet, Making Your Wishes Known to assist people to make their wishes about future healthcare known to us. Creating an Advance Decision and/or Advance Statement can bring some reassurance to a person worried about future healthcare. During a crisis you may be too ill to make informed decisions or express your wishes clearly. This is a way of telling us what you want or don’t want to happen before that situation occurs.
