Health care in care homes: a special review of the provision of health care to those in care homes

Review which aimed to look at how well the health care needs of people living in care homes were met, based on commissioning and provider behaviours.

The scope for the review set out to consider practice not just in individual care homes, but to focus attention on the rights of people in care homes to access NHS services that met their needs. This included GP services and pathways for continence care, NHS support for care homes to ensure quality of health care through direct provision of district nursing services, and training for care home staff.
