Discharge Planning Agreement

Care coordination agreements are effective tools for presenting the responsibilities of participating providers, facilities and services. These agreements ensure that responsibilities for transfers of care and services are orderly and promote the highest possible quality of care. The agreements also include protocols and procedures for sharing information between organizations. Care coordination agreements ensure quality care and establish protocols to support effective transitions. Protocols and procedures must be in place to ensure that people from emergency services, inpatient psychiatry, detoxification and places of residence are put in place in a safe community environment. The CCBHC should establish protocols and procedures, including the transmission of medical records related to services received; Active follow-up after discharge If necessary, a suicide prevention and safety plan; and a provision for peer services. Procedures should include a lag between subsequent assessment and treatment. The planning obligations of the Planning Act 1990 and the planning agreements of 1990 are land royalties and, as such, land royalties with the land up to respect for the land, have been varied or formally reduced according to the corresponding formalities. S52 agreements and s106 agreements may be amended or unloaded by agreement with the local planning authority and any other party to the original document.

Any change to a unilateral s106 obligation is also subject to approval by the local planning authority. When changes are requested, the local planning authority must verify that the planning obligation would serve its purpose as well with the proposed amendment. It cannot make an amendment that would impose an obligation on a party other than the applicant. If an amendment is adopted, it comes into effect from the date of the local authority`s finding. The local planning authority is empowered to fulfill a planning obligation if it “no longer fulfils any useful objective.” If the application is rejected or if the local planning authority does not make a decision within 8 weeks, an appeal can be lodged with the Secretary of State and, if so, the matter is dealt with upon request. CCCs should have consumer follow-up protocols that are admitted to emergency departments, hospital and outpatient hospitals, detoxifications, and housing and other facilities. These protocols also apply when consumers are licensed, unless there is a formal transfer of care to a non-CCBHC unit.
