Identifying the active ingredients for success: Reducing emergency admissions from care homes

Identifying the active ingredients for success: Reducing emergency admissions from care homes As a preview to the much-anticipated NHS long term plan, the Government recently announced a national initiative to reduce avoidable admissions to hospital by providing enhanced community health care, including rapid response teams, to support people in their own homes. Significantly, this support is also going to be available to people living in care homes.

The initiative builds on work of the the Enhanced Health in Care Homes vanguards which were announced as part of the Five Year Forward View for the NHS in England. The vanguards have been widely evaluated, meaning that there is a rich evidence base available for those implementing the new initiative. The Health Foundation
