React To Red

Pressure ulcer prevention for care homes and other healthcare providers

React To Red

React To Red was written, funded and produced by Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Bassettlaw CCG and Crocodile House Ltd respectively. Originally, React To Red was provided as a pack with accompanying DVD which is now being made more accessible though this website. As such there may be reference to this and other issues that relate to its original launch in the Bassettlaw region. This training resource consists of six parts with accompanying documents to view or download.
