Holistic needs assessment and care planning

What is a Holistic Needs Assessment (HNA)?

A HNA is a tool used by healthcare professionals to identify your individual needs and contribute to a discussion about your health. The discussion can then be focused on areas that are important to you, a care plan developed and referrals / signposting made to support services, such as rehabilitation, psychological support and services dealing with the consequences of treatment.

This ensures that your care and support services are planned and accessed appropriately.
