Linda was invited to speak about what is considered quality improvement in a care home setting, and she spoke about training staff, innovation and responsive and effective management. Having introduced Avery Healthcare, Linda spoke about the quality of care the company provides through our values and leadership. When discussing how Avery incorporates training and investment into the workplace, the NHS were keen to learn more about Avery’s staff satisfaction.

The seminar focused mainly on ways to recognise and respond to resident’s deterioration in the care home setting and how staff can improve on the outcome of survival. Linda spoke about a pressure ulcer prevention campaign developed by University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, React to Red Skin, and how all staff at Amarna House have received the training and embedded good practice on identifying pressure sores before they become an issue for the resident and their well-being.

Other speakers included; Michelle Carrington, Executive Director of Quality and Nursing at Vale of York CCG, Dr Nigel Wells, General Practitioner and Clinical Chair at Cale of York CCG, and Dr Jocelyn Patel, General Practitioner at Sherburn Group Practise.
