Sutton Homes of Care initiative celebrates achievements

An event took place recently to celebrate partners, achievements and lessons learnt with the Sutton Homes of Care vanguard team and beyond. Sutton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was awarded vanguard status in​ March 2015 – one of only six enhanced health in care home vanguards​ in England.
“Our aim was to improve the health and quality of life for all care home residents in Sutton by delivering a new care model that offers older people living in care homes improved and integrated health care and rehabilitation services,” said a spokesperson.
“We have had the opportunity to work in partnership with local health and social care providers, the voluntary sector and Care Home residents and their families across Sutton.”
Dr. Jeff Croucher, Clinical Chair of Sutton CCG said: “Thank you to all of our partners and everyone who has been involved in Sutton Homes of Care vanguard over the duration of the programme, the journey wouldn’t have been the same without you in making a difference for care home residents across Sutton and beyond.”
Key accomplishments include;

strengthened commitment to working in partnership with other providers and commissioners across Sutton to improve integration;
established good working relationships with care home managers and a Care Home Forum to enable care home staff to meet regularly and support each other to improve the quality of care;
established a model designed to deliver preventative and proactive healthcare to Care Home residents;
co-produced the “Red Bag” Hospital Transfer Pathway to support the admission/discharge process of residents to hospital, reduce length of stay and improve sharing of relevant health and social information of residents’;
co-developed and launched a number of education resources and training tools to support staff in care homes in delivering improved care;
enhanced the Joint Intelligence Group that brings together a range of local and national organisations to ensure we understand more about the quality of care being delivered in Sutton care homes;
developed a quality dashboard displaying a number of quality measures for each care home to be used by the Joint Intelligence Group to review trends and highlight concerns and training requirements.
