Essential Shared Care Arrangements (ESCA)

The aim of Essential Shared Care Guidelines is to provide information to General Practitioners about complex or high cost therapies that their patients may receive following specialist referral. Guidelines will only be written when it has been agreed that shared care is an appropriate option and will include a statement of Specialist and GP responsibilities.  Shared Care Guidelines will ensure that all GP’s have sufficient information to enable them to undertake prescribing responsibility for specialist therapies and other therapies which may affect/interact with specialist therapies.  This guidance is not intended to be prescriptive and may be amended according to the individual clinicians view and patient circumstances.
