  • Quick guide to 'red bag' scheme for hospital handovers

    Quick guide to 'red bag' scheme for hospital handovers

    14.07.18 NHS England has published a quick guide to the “red bag” scheme which facilitates smoother handovers of patients/residents between hospitals and care homes. The NHS in Sutton, south London, pioneered the scheme, finding that residents whose medical paperwork and other necessities were placed in the red bag spent four days less in hospital than those without the bag. The saving locally was Ł167,000 a year, leading 40% of local health and wellbeing boards in other parts of the country to take up the scheme. The quick guide can be found here and includes practical tips and case studies. There are also webinars on 13 July and 18 July.

  • New health and social care units to help ensue evidence-based policy

    New health and social care units to help ensue evidence-based policy

    13.07.18 A new Health and Social Care Workforce Research Unit (HSCWRU) is one of 13 new research units which the National Institute of Health Research has backed with a Ł65 million investment over five years. The aim of the new units is to ensure that policy decisions on health and social care are based on good evidence. The HSCWRU starts work in January 2019 and will be jointly run by King’s College London (KCL) and the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS), having evolved from KCL’s existing Social Care Workforce Research Unit under Professor Jill Manthorpe. Professor Manthorpe, who will also be director of the new unit, said: “We have long maintained that dementia research needs to understand the dementia workforce; in our new role we hope to widen our interests in the health as well as social care workforce.”
