Hundreds attending care home events – don’t miss out!

A series of free conferences helping care homes to learn about the enhanced health in care homes framework is proving hugely popular.

More than 200 care home staff attended the first two events, which covered issues like falls prevention, pressure damage and transfers between care providers.

With strong demand for places, the final event has been moved to a new venue, so that as many people as possible can attend.

Speakers from around the country will outline a range of initiatives including the Red Bag scheme for hospital transfers, React to Red, which can help to prevent pressure damage, digital technologies and falls prevention.

The final event takes place on 22 March 2018, 9am – 4.15pm, at the Stoneybeck Inn, Penrith CA11 8RP.

To book a free place, call Emma Ford on 01642 745 087 or email to

The events are led by NHS England with support from the North East and North Cumbria Urgent and Emergency Care Network.
