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.

We have worked in partnership with local health and social care providers including The London Borough of Sutton, Epsom & St Helier Trust, Sutton Community Health Services, along with the voluntary sector organisations  across a registered GP population of 203,000 and 25 GP Practices. You can find a full list of our partners here.

Thank you to all of our partners and everyone who has been involved in Sutton Homes of Care Vanguard over the duration of the programme, the journey wouldn't have been the same without them making a difference for care home residents across Sutton and beyond.
