At this event, we will be showcasing local case studies from each county and providing a platform for learning and sharing your ideas for improving care homes across the South West (Devon, Cornwall and Somerset).

The South West Care Home Network event will take place quarterly and will focus on the improvement elements of the Enhanced Health in Care homes (EHCH) framework related to Medicine Safety and Managing Deterioration in care homes by exploring your ideas, pulling together support from across the Region.
