HC-One care home celebrates role in government-backed training pilot
HC-One’s Rose Court care home in Radcliffe, Manchester, has received high praise for its role as part of a government-backed pilot scheme in the recently published Teaching Care Home Impact Report.
Rose Court was one of a group of services chosen to take part in the scheme, led by Care England and funded by the Department for Health. The pilot scheme aimed to improve the learning environment for care home staff, develop new undergraduate nurse apprenticeships and encourage nurses to join learning placements in care homes.
The impact report, launched at a Parliamentary reception in the House of Lords, highlighted how the pilot had helped staff at Rose Court to increase knowledge, skills and confidence in using reflective practice to improve their work, as well as increased confidence in their ability to carry out their work. The pilot built upon HC-One’s existing training scheme which aims to ensure nurses have the right skills to support residents in a care home environment.
“We have already developed an industry-leading, multi-award winning training and career development programme for colleagues, which is in use across all HC-One homes,” said company chairman Dr Chai Patel.
“We at HC-One are incredibly proud of what our colleagues at Rose Court have achieved through their participation in this exciting pilot scheme. We are committed to providing the kindest care, and we are glad that we had the opportunity to contribute to innovation and professionalisation in the sector.”
