“In the very short time that these RITA units have been in place, significant improvement has been seen in care in all locations which accommodate no less
than 1,460 residents in North Tyneside”

A collaborative approach to improving the quality of life for residents, relatives and staff associated with North Tyneside Care Homes and North Tyneside CCG.
A significant problem facing hospitals generally can be the delayed transfer of care into care homes, and particularly where they are unable to support a patient with more complex needs. Another area is avoidable re-admission of residents from the care home setting back to hospital. Embracing digital technology, North Tyneside have funded My Improvement Network’s RITA system into 31 of their Care Homes.
