Announcement from SEHTA

SEHTA is proud to announce the release of their ‘Technology and Innovation in Care Homes:
The SEHTA Review’. For your copy of the review please select this link.
The greater use of ICT has for many years been proposed as a way of helping care homes provide high-quality services and improve their sustainability. Over this same period, SEHTA has been bringing care providers and technology suppliers together to help create sustainable ventures from its vantage point of independence from both. Coming from this background, this Review analyses the changing care environment and its impact on care homes and, from the large number of pilot projects and trials, identifies what will make a difference to a care home. The Review describes the process that SEHTA has developed for eliciting requirements and selecting solutions through a rigorous analysis of care home needs and thorough analysis of the costs and benefits for implementing technologies to meet those needs.
Dr David Parry, CEO, SEHTA said; “This Review combines the wealth of knowledge and expertise that SEHTA has about the pressures and problems faced by care homes with its thorough awareness of the technological solutions available on the market. Our unique understanding will help care and nursing homes understand how technology can bring longer term sustainability and growth to their businesses”.

The Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards have been in force for some time now, however they are still one of the most common reasons for “requires improvement” judgements by CQC.

Do you have appropriate policies in place? Are you recording your best interest decisions appropriately?
SCA now have both MCA and DoLS policies available to purchase at £65 for Subscribers and £100 for Non-Subscribers. Click this link to view samples of this brilliant pack.

Safeguarding Policy and Procedures - Have you contacted SCA for your copy yet?


SCA has commissioned Christine Maclean to produce template policies and procedures to reflect recent changes. Chris has produced a fantastic package of templates which providers can customize to update their organization's policies and procedures.

Some providers have already seen a copy and have commented that this will save them hours of time in starting from scratch. The policy and procedures pack is available to subscribers at a cost of £60 and to non-subscribers at a cost of £100 (SCA has to make a charge for these templates to cover the cost of commissioning this piece of work).

To view examples of this useful pack please click here, to purchase your copy contact the SCA office on 01372 825 116 or email sca@surreycare.org.uk.
