Primary and community provider support for care home residents

NHS England and NHS Improvement have published a letter asking primary care and community health services to help provide the best possible care for care home residents.

The letter requires CCGs, working with primary care and community providers to ensure:

  • timely access to clinical advice for care home staff and residents;
  • proactive support for people living in care homes; and
  • care home residents with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are supported through remote monitoring – and face to face assessment where clinically appropriate – by a multidisciplinary team.
