Home part of scheme
A Bedlington care home is one of five across the country to be involved in a pilot scheme to improve the learning environment for staff.
Care England has obtained funding from the Department of Health to enable five of its members to participate – these include Chester Court on Choppington Road.
One of the aims of Teaching Care Home is to encourage nu-rses to the sector by creating confidence about their roles.
Chester Court general manager Pam Towers said: “Being part of this pilot will enable us to work more closely with multidisciplinary team members on how we can improve what we do at the home.
“The scheme will also work to change perceptions across the country of the care home environment as a workplace.”
