  • Abstract:

    Background

    There are over 420k people aged 65 years and older living in residential care1, of which most of the healthcare needs are provided by the care home staff. Provision of healthcare services for residents in care homes is variable, and can result in disjointed care between carers and NHS healthcare professionals2.
