Next phase of the project has started!

27th April 2022

We have ended the survey of the GP practices and primary care staff about the current models of care provided to care homes. We are finishing the analysis now and hope to publish the findings soon. Watch this space for more information.

We are now recruiting for interviews with select GP practices and care homes. Participants will share their views on how to improve access to GP-led services and support the relationship between care homes and primary care. The information we collect will help develop a vision for primary care which enables consistent access to healthcare that reflects care home residents’ needs and priorities and how that can be achieved within current structures and resources. Contact us if you would like to know more.

Survey of GP practices and primary care staff

24th February 2022

The project has rolled out the online survey to collect the views of the current models of care with care homes used at GP practices across the East of England region. The findings will help get a better picture of the current relationships between primary care and care home. What we find will also inform the people who will be approached about taking part in interviews to capture the range of relationships between primary care and care homes.

Care homes and primary care website launch

16th November 2021

The website for the project titled, Care homes and primary care: co-producing a sustainable relationship is now live. This project aims to develop a vision for primary care which enables consistent access to healthcare that reflects care home residents’ needs and priorities and how that can be achieved within current structures and resources, funded by The Healthcare Improvement Studies (THIS) Institute. Dr Krystal Warmoth will lead the work for this project.

Currently, the project is obtaining the necessary approvals in order to conduct the study.
