Re: Deborah Blythes post on 17 Dec:
FACS = Fair Access to Care Services
Hi Dx is commonly used in hospitals to refer to the process of discharge too i.e. pt (patient) is ready for dx
tx = transfer, as in patient (pt) is able to tx indpendently
ADLs - activities of daily living
POC = package of care
FFCHC = fully funded continuing health care (another variation often used in my local authority)
ABI = Acquired Brain Injury
Thanks, Jancis and Other: additions added. Pam
Just spotted SU in a recent post (helpfully used in full as "Service User" before being used in abbreviated form), so added it to the list! Pam
CPA now added, from Marypoppins' thread. Pam
Added CCSVI after seeing it in a post today. Pam
Thank you Pam.
"HTH" spotted in a message just now and added. (At least, I think it means "Hope that helps"!) Pam
Agree with Jimbo. Brilliant and so useful to refer to. Can it, plus JPG's great contributions, be put somewhere permanent for easy reference please?

Just added PIP having had to Google it to find out what it means! Pam
Why can't we just use English
Just spotted LCP - Liverpool Care Pathway in a recent post.
UPdated with LCP as suggested by Jancis and a few from DLM's recent thread - LO, CP, ALF, SNH. (Didn't include his/her suggested XYL=wife: I had to google it to find out that it's "ex-young-lady" used in Ham Radio circles! Seems a bit obscure for the TP list.) Pam
Another one for you Pam, ITH = Inheritance Tax Threshold http://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/showthread.php?36196-deprivation-of-assetts/page2
Added IHT=Inheritance Tax. Thanks, Jancis. Pam
ICO = Information Commissioner's Office
- sorry if I am becoming a bore
ICO added - I'd spotted it in a thread and thought I ought to find out what it was, but didn't get round to it, so thanks, Jancis!
