iPads to help care homes provide continued care to residents

To ensure that all care home residents in England have equality in access to video consultations and remote care, NHSX is providing tablet devices to care homes and helping them to improve their internet access.

The tablet will also allow staff to access NHSmail, other tools or systems needed to support care as well as to connect care home residents with loved ones. This offer is one element of a package of support for care homes ahead of winter. Care homes must apply for a tablet before 23 October 2020. Find out more about eligibility and apply.
