A red bag: a simple change packing a difference

The innovative red bag scheme is helping to provide a better care experience for care home residents by improving communication between care homes and hospitals.

Currently just over 40% of health and wellbeing boards have reported that they have implemented the red bag scheme in their area and a quick guide has been published to help increase this number. 

The quick guide aims to support health and social care systems, providing practical tips and case studies on how to roll the scheme out successfully. To support this further, a series of webinars have been planned to provide training, advice and resources for CCGs, NHS trusts and care homes.
