NHS Capacity Tracker and IPC Fund webinar for GM Care Homes (17 November 2020)
The NHS Capacity Tracker provides important data and information for local authorities, GM and NW system leaders and the Department of Health & Social Care. Care Homes are asked to update the tracker ideally each day Mon – Fri, some data is only required weekly and monthly. The minimum requirement is to update the tracker at least once per week. This is one of the eligibility criteria for access to the Infection Prevention & Control Fund.
This webinar was recorded so that you can access the information you need to support you to interpret and answer the NHS Capacity Tracker questions. Since this webinar it has become a requirement for care at home providers to also complete some fields in the capacity tracker. We hope to have more information or you soon. If you have any queries regarding the capacity tracker please contact us on email@example.com
There are many benefits for social care providers by signing up to NHS Mail, such as access to electronic prescribing, discharge summaries and results being able to be shared by email and access to Microsoft Teams for consultations as a secure video link.
This is available to all care homes and home care providers via a fast track service. Complete the form, (also included are the instructions on completing the form) and return this to firstname.lastname@example.org

Hidden Talent Employer Toolkit
Greater Manchester’s Hidden Talent is a voluntary youth employment programme helping ‘hidden’ young people aged 18-25 progress towards employment and improve their self-esteem and wellbeing.
Hidden young people are not in employment, education or training and not claiming any benefits.
The toolkit provides easy-to -implement tips for employers. These can make recruitment processes more accessible for young people, ensuring a diverse range of talent is not overlooked. Although the focus is on opening up opportunity to young people with barriers to work, much of the toolkit’s advice is good recruitment practice for any and all demographics.
The toolkit is structured around five key elements of the recruitment process: establishing the correct mindset (as a recruiter), writing job adverts & specs, notifying and providing feedback, selection processes and inductions.
