PSNC Briefing 055/16: The Enhanced Health in Care Homes care model (October 2016)

PSNC Briefing 055/16: The Enhanced Health in Care Homes care model (October 2016)

In January 2015, the NHS invited individual organisations and partnerships, including those with the voluntary sector to apply to become vanguard sites for the New Models of Care Programme, one of the first steps towards delivering the NHS Five Year Forward View (5YFV) and supporting improvement and integration of services.

One of the vanguard types is the enhanced health in care homes (EHCH) care model which offers older people better, joined up health, care and rehabilitation services.

This PSNC Briefing summarises NHS England’s document, The framework for enhanced health in care homes, which outlines various evidence-based interventions designed to be delivered within and around a care home in a coordinated manner in order to make the biggest difference to its residents. It will be of particular interest to LPC members who have EHCH models being developed in their area.
