Residents to receive personalised care under new £3.5bn health plan

Care homes will benefit from visits from pharmacists and GPs including out of hours, under a new £3.5 billion five-year plan for primary care.

Healthcare professionals will be assigned to care homes where they get to know individual residents’ needs and can provide tailored treatment and support, the Prime Minister has said.

Department of Health and Social Care analysis suggests that over a third of hospital admissions from care homes are avoidable. Part of the Long Term Plan for the NHS, this initiative aims to provide “a genuine and high-quality alternative to hospital” offering care home residents “more personalised, convenient and timely care where they live”.
