New online video training for care home staff
The short videos are available online here and describe how to take measurements from residents correctly (such as blood pressure and oxygen saturation), spots the signs of deterioration, and prevent the spread of infection.
GP receptionists are crucial in the process of receiving and escalating the concerns of homes. This poster supports receptionists to manage information conveyed using RESTORE2™ and ensures that information is sent to clinical decision makers in a timely and safe way.
It is critical that frontline ambulance staff as well as NHS111 call handlers are aware of NEWS2 and the homes using RESTORE2™ so that they know to ask or look for the information contained in RESTORE2™. This poster raises awareness and highlights the benefits to the ambulance service (999 and 111).
This poster introduces people to the key elements of NEWS2 – great to display around the premises to raise awareness. Suitable for care and nursing homes, GP practices and ambulance trusts.

Before a member of staff uses RESTORE2™ they need to be assessed as competent to safely and accurately take vital signs (physical observations). If you are using an external provider to roll-out RESTORE2™ they may have their own competency framework to use. Otherwise, this competency document can be used. We suggest that both carers and registered professionals complete the competency framework for assurance and standardisation.
