​​Welcome to Sutton Homes of Care Vanguard​

One Year Anniversary - 20160318.JPG

Sutton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) was awarded Vanguard status in​ March 2015 – one of only six enhanced health in care home vanguards​ in England.

Our aim is to improve the health and quality of life for all care home residents in Sutton by delivering a new care model that offers older people living in care homes improved and integrated health care and rehabilitation services. The vanguard programme builds on work that has been undertaken with our care homes over the past two years.

We work in partnership with local health and social care providers including The London Borough of Sutton, Age UK Sutton and The Alzheimer’s Society across a registered GP population of 191,000 and 25 GP Practices.  You can find a full list of our partners here.

Over the next few years, the number of older people with complex healthcare needs is predicted to increase significantly.  In turn, this will lead to an increase in demand for care.  It’s crucial that care home residents are treated with compassion, empathy, respect and carers have a thorough understanding of residents’ physical, mental, and emotional needs to ensure they continue to have the best quality of life possible.
To achieve this, we will continue to improve and deliver high quality care in all our care homes through an enhanced primary and community care model involving all our partners both locally and nationally, care home staff, residents and their families.
