AHP’s in Care Home

NHS Improvement & AHP colleagues have produced a joint supporting publication for the AHPs into Action programme for supporting healthcare in care home.  

It is available at https://www.england.nhs.uk/ahp/ahps-into-action/  or can be downloaded here: Quick Guide AHPs Enhancing Health in care homes

This quick guide will support AHPs and service leaders to meet the priorities and ambitions for care home residents detailed in the NHS long term plan.  The NHS long term plan details 4 strategic priorities for community health services, one of which was the roll out of the Enhancing Health in Care Homes Framework. The ambition includes a focus on nutrition and hydration and provision of support from the right professionals when care home residents have been unwell, including rehabilitation.
