A new scheme is currently being piloted across Pennine Lancashire, with around 30 care homes participating in the first two phases of the rollout.

A distinctive red bag with “Together a healthier future” emblazoned on the front, will be accompanying care home patients when they are admitted to hospital.  When a decision is made for a care home resident to go to hospital, the care home will pack a red bag to go with the resident.
