Place of publication:

The health and wellbeing of older people in care homes depends on them accessing GP services in a timely way. Effective joint working between GP and care home management, the involvement of residents and their relatives and the engagement of care staff are factors that can affect the outcome and lead to quality improvements. This guide sets out steps the care home manager should take, in areas such as record-keeping, medications management and monitoring resident feedback on their experience of medical care, to complement the work of GPs and nurses. The main sections cover: residents entitlements and requirements; managers' responsibilities; GPs' role in relation to the resident; workforce development, standards and regulation. Clear recommendations are made for each section. The guide is written primarily for managers and senior staff of care homes but will also be useful for GPs and members of clinical commissioning groups and joint health and wellbeing boards.

Interim report providing an update on the final year of evaluation of the Sutton Homes of Care Vanguard since end of year report for 2016/17. It presents initial findings from qualitative evidence from care home managers and uses data on Length of Stay for care home residents to analyse the ongoing impact of the Red Bag intervention, used to send key documents about a resident’s needs with the resident if they have to go to hospital.. Nursing homes and mental health and learning disability care homes were represented through discussion group and consultations. The main findings show that care home managers are positive about the value of the Vanguard and believe it is improving care home staff skills and confidence, but has not affected staff turnover. In some cases managers also pointed to improved outcomes for residents as a result of Vanguard activities. Managers were divided over whether the Vanguard impact will be sustained, as training was seen as requiring continuing resource. Length of stay for residents from care homes using the Red Bag is lower than residents from care homes not using the Red Bag (on average, 4.4 days fewer for residents from nursing homes and 4.1 days fewer for those from residential homes using the Red Bag). Managers also provide views on the sustainability of the Vanguard activities and the lessons learnt. (Edited publisher abstract)

Place of publication:

This research explores the implementation and effects of the Children’s Homes Regulations and Quality Standards on the skills, knowledge and qualifications of children’s home managers and staff. The study involved interviews with 20 key stakeholders, including local authority commissioning managers, decision makers, local authority providers and training providers. It explored their views on qualifications, pay and routes in or out of the residential care sector. The results found a positive acceptance of the Children’s Homes Regulations and Quality Standards, with acknowledgement that these had been an improvement on the National Minimum Standards. It was felt the Regulations empowered managers, giving them greater professional identity and responsibility. It was also felt staff within the children’s home sector had a variety of opportunities for progression. The study, which was completed shortly after the introduction of the Children’s Homes (England) Regulations and Quality Standards 2015, builds on the findings from two previous phases of research of the Children’s Homes. Since the completion of the research, key processes have changed and a review of residential care has been commissioned by the government. (Edited publisher abstract)
