Leading the way: the Red Bag initiative

The West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group has acquired funding to purchase one or two red bags for every care home in Hampshire.

RED Bags is an initiative to improve transfers and communication with our local hospitals. A checklist is to be completed by the care home and ward staff to ensure no vital pieces of information, equipment or documentation is missed prior to the transfer between care home, hospital and back.

Sutton Manor is delighted to be the second home awarded one of these fab bags and are looking forward to using them to better protect our residents when they are needing hospital care.
