Care Homes Team

What does the Care Homes team do?

The CCG has a small Care Homes team who work closely with care homes and providers to help improve the quality of care residents receive. The team help to support Care home staff to ensure they are receiving the training they need and complying with CQC guidelines.

The Care Homes team uses its experience and knowledge of clinical guidelines to ensure that patients within East and West Suffolk get the care they need to live a long and happy life.

As new clinical guidelines are developed and new research is published on existing care homes, care home staff are alerted to any changes and supported in implementing these changes.

The Care Homes Team supports the CCG’s aim to improve the health of the population by improving the quality of care through:

  • Promoting the safe, evidence based and cost-effective use of homely remedies
  • Providing up to date, unbiased information about legislation, clinical guidelines and care pathways
  • Supporting providers and care homes to make positive changes to comply with CQC guidelines
  • Minimising the risk of falls, acute episodes and admissions
  • Developing local guidelines and care pathways to optimise the care the resident receives
