What to do when I'm unwell
This popular acute plan or early warning signs plan can be used for anything from COPD to heart failure, migraines or gout attacks.
For many of these and other conditions, earlier treatment can often minimise time off work and severity or even prevent admissions to hospital.
Use this plan to identify key symptoms or signs to watch for and provide clear instructions of what to do when.
