Full house for first two care homes conferences

Busy days at first two events - some spaces still available for Penrith on 22 March.

Over 100 staff from care homes attended each of the first two Enhanced Health in Care Homes conferences in Gateshead and Newton Aycliffe,  helping care homes to keep in touch with the latest developments in health.

But there’s still a chance to take part – with a further event taking place in Penrith on 22 March.

The series of three events are covering issues like preventing falls, reducing pressure damage and ensuring safe transfers between care homes and hospitals.

Speakers and workshops are outlining the latest initiatives from around the country – helping you to improve safety, quality and health outcomes for residents.
