Red Bag Scheme

You may have heard about the Red Bag Scheme at our recent Manager’s forums and during the Care Home Education Programmes.

It has been used with good success in the Sutton Vanguard site and Ashford CCG are delighted to say that funding has been agreed to support the introduction of the project in the East Kent Locality. The CCG is working with the East Kent Hospitals University Foundation NHS Trust, SECamb and KCC to roll out the programme.

We will be discussing this in further detail at our next Care Home Forum scheduled on Tuesday 27th November, 9am at Sandyacres Sports and Social Club.
