What does the service provide?
The Nurse Advisors for Care Homes’ mission is to empower care homes to reduce avoidable hospital admissions/attendance. They aim to reduce the number of residents who live in care homes being transferred unnecessarily to hospital, including those at the end of their lives.The service covers Care Homes with Nursing and Residential homes within east Surrey (not including those homes registered for Learning Disability or Mental Health).
It is a small team that works across east Surrey, in partnership with primary care, acute hospitals and other community services. Their aspiration is for residents to live as well as possible in their own care home environment.
Care home staff can access support and information here.
