What is a Flare Up Plan?
A flare up is a sudden increase of symptoms, e.g. pain or fatigue from a chronic condition. Flares are ‘transient’ they will eventually calm down. In the mean time a flare up plan helps you and your support network to manage by laying out what to do and in what order. A flare up plan makes sure that you, your Doctors and your family are all working from the same page (literally).
How do the appointments work?
All appointments are via video chat (Skype, Google Hangouts or Zoom etc). There is no expectation for you to get out of bed and pajamas are perfectly acceptable attire.
A standard 30 minute consultation is usually long enough but for people with highly complex medical conditions appointments may take up to an hour. After 30 minutes I will give you the option to continue or finish where we are.
During the appointment we will discuss how a flare up plan works, discuss your most challenging symptoms and how your currently manage them, problem solve challenging symptoms and discuss new management strategies. After the appointment I will type everything up and aim to email it to you within a day. I can also provide paper copies and send copies to other medical professionals or family members at your request.
E-mail, direct message and social media support is available afterwards at no extra cost.
How much does it cost?
Appointments are £15 per 30 minutes with free email support afterwards. Payment plans are available on request.
