NHS Blackpool CCG is committed to enhancing the quality and delivery of nursing care within Care Homes by supporting staff and managers to achieve the optimum levels of care delivery.
There are two main types of care home:
Residential Care Home
These offer care and support both day and night. Staff assist with personal care, bathing, support at mealtimes, moving around and accessing the toilet.
Care Homes with Nursing
These generally offer the same type of care and support as Residential Care Homes, but with the addition of twenty four hour Registered Nursing support.
If you or your relative have been assessed as needing nursing care, then the NHS will pay a contribution towards your care. This is known as Funded Nursing Care. For more information about this please click here.
Some people may be eligible for Continuing Healthcare Funding if they are assessed as having a primary health need. For more information on this please click here.
The Care Quality Commission
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. Their role is to make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and encourage them to improve.
