The Armed Forces personnel in transition, Integrated Personal Commissioning for Veterans Framework (IPC4V) is a new personalised care approach for the small number of Armed Forces personnel who have complex and enduring physical, neurological and mental health conditions that are attributable to injury whilst in Service.
Developed with the Ministry of Defence (MOD), as well as with patients and their families, IPC4V provides a framework for effectively planning and delivering personalised care in line with the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant. Central to this is an improved discharge planning process, starting approximately nine months before these individuals are due to leave the military. As part of this, the MOD, health and social care, Armed Forces charities and other organisations work together with the individual to develop a personalised care and support plan that meets their needs in ways that work for them. Where appropriate, this also includes the involvement of the individual’s family/carer.
