Co-ordinate my Care and Future Matters Service

It is now possible for you to begin a CMC plan yourself. You can go to the mycmc website, where you can click on Start mycmc and watch the introductory video to find out more. However, you will still need to meet with a healthcare professional to discuss and complete the care plan before it can be shared with other services. If you are unsure whether you already have a CMC plan in place, please contact Reception on 0207 619 6670

The Future Matters service has a team of trained volunteers who can support patients to complete a Coordinate my Care Plan via the myCMC portal and make lasting powers of attorney.
