NHS Tayside update their care home MUST management guidelines

NHS Tayside update their care home MUST management guidelines.

Staff are requested to calculate MUST scores as normal but the guidelines give clearer information on the actions that care staff should when a MUST score is one or two. 

NHS Tayside Dietitians have moved to a position where they will only accept referrals for those residents who have a MUST score of two or more.

NHS Tayside welcome any comments, queries or suggestions regarding their MUST management approach and very much value service input into getting the system and processes right for all.
