Enhanced Health in Care Homes
Enhanced Health in Care Homes: A guide for care homes
The Care Provider Alliance (CPA) has published a new guide for care home managers on how to make the most out of Enhanced Health in Care Homes (EHCH).
The NHS Long Term Plan contained a commitment to roll out the Framework for Enhanced Health in Care Homes (V2) across England between 2020 and 2024.
The guide explains what the Enhanced Health in Care Homes (EHCH) programme is, how to make it work in the best way possible for people living in care homes and the people who care for them, and what everyone involved can expect from it. The CPA hope it will reassure you that being actively involved in the EHCH programme should not require a significant change to the way you work, instead, you should see increased support into the home from health and care services.
This guide is intended for registered managers of care homes and care home staff but may be of interest to a wider group.
