At any given time, approximately 1,400 residents live in residential, nursing, specialist and mental health care homes across Salford. These homes support residents to live fulfilling lives whilst interacting with multiple services within our health and social care system.

Our shared goal is to provide quality for residents in care homes in Salford, working collaboratively to develop improvements.

From March 2018, all care homes in Salford are invited to participate in the Salford Care Homes Excellence Programme. This programme brings together care home staff and health and care services from across Salford in a supportive community of practice, with priorities set by care home managers.

Between 2016 and 2018, 9 care homes participated in an improvement collaborative to reduce harm. Using the Breakthrough Series Collaborative model to support improvement, care homes share learning at peer site visits, built understanding of safety culture and developed improvement capability of staff, focusing specifically on:

  • Reducing Falls
  • Medication safety
  • Pressure ulcer prevention
