The analysis compared the health outcomes of 588 care home residents in 23 care homes in Rushcliffe between August 2014 and August 2016 with those of 588 care home residents living elsewhere in the country.

The two groups were matched to ensure they were of similar ages, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, health conditions and the type of care home they lived in.

Adam Steventon, director of data analytics at the Health Foundation, said the reduction in A&E attendances has been achieved by ‘enabling clinicians, care home staff and the charity sector to work together across organisational boundaries’.

Samantha Jones, director of the New Care Models Programme, said: ‘Combined with other results from across the country, we can see that the new models of care being tested and implemented by the 50 vanguards are making steady progress in reducing the pressure on GP and hospital services.

‘These models are the foundations for transformation across health and care, including the sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs).’
