The Advance Statement is a document which allows you, when you are well, to state your wishes and preferences should you become ill.
It has been adopted by AWP Mental Health Trust and can be included in your notes.
Workers should read and respect the statement.
Advanced Statements or Directives are regarded as legal documents but can be overridden by a doctor if an emergency arises.
