Care Homes are asked to review their Capacity Tracker information and ensure that it accurately reflects the status of your bed types i.e., those beds that are closed to admissions are accurately showing as closed within the Costs, Vacancies and Business Continuity section of the system.

This will help prevent unnecessary calls to care home locations from discharge teams who need to know at speed if a bed is open and the home is able to accept a new resident.
