Resource for Health and Social Care Professionals The SPICT™ helps professionals identify people with general indicators of poor or deteriorating health and clinical signs of life-limiting conditions for assessment and care planning.

Health Professionals see the original SPICT on this website.

The website is not designed to give medical advice, but rather to give information on a wide range of topics to health and social care staff, no matter where they work. Find out more
