This review addressed how older people and people with learning disabilities living in care homes access healthcare services, whether they have choice and control over their healthcare and whether they receive care that is safe and respects their dignity.
During this review, inspection teams visited a sample of 81 care homes within nine PCT areas. They interviewed managers, residents and staff, observed care provided to residents and examined case files.
Earlier data on older people’s homes was passed to the British Geriatric Society for a secondary analysis. The results of that data analysis can be found here.
