Manchester Connect is an on-line training and resource centre, funded by Manchester Health and Care Commissioning, the site provides links to the resources that have been rolled out nationally and to trainers who can facilitate virtual and face to face training.
It has been widely reported that Care Homes and those working within Social Care are struggling to cope with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is, in part, due to the vulnerability of the individuals being cared for who are likely to have complex underlying health conditions, significantly compromised immune systems and Dementia-related illnesses – a combination which increases risk and limits the application of effective infection control measures.
The NHS and Carers have been actively searching for solutions to address the challenges and reduce mortality rates. With Manchester Connect they are setting an impressive national standard for truly integrated care, instilling a new level confidence as the initiative is positively embraced.
