Short-notice care home closures: a guide for local authority commissioners

This guide aims to help commissioners, particularly local authority staff, to manage care home closures at short notice in situations that may be unexpected. It should also be useful to care home staff, residents and relatives.

It covers implications for practice, examples of what others are doing and a summary of what policy and research tells us. It also includes examples of procedures, checklists and templates from various organisations around the UK.
