The Red Bag Pathway

Providing the personal property carrier (PATIENT BAG) for care homes and hospital trusts as part of the Red Bag Pathway

The Versapak Patient Overnight Bag has been designed as part of the NHS Hospital Transfer Pathway Scheme (Red Bag) and is a high quality, hard wearing, durable bag for holding standardised medical information, medication and personal property of individuals when they are being transferred between their care home and a hospital. Standardised paperwork is critical for ensuring all stakeholders (Nurses, Doctors, Carers) have the necessary information concerning a patient such as general health and current medication.

The Versapak Red Bag

The Versapak Red Bag is reusable over 2,000 times and comes with a 5 year guarantee, it also incorporates VersaShield Antimicrobial Protection.  This technology actively kills bacteria including MRSA, E.coli, Mould & Fungus, without the need for chemicals or deep cleaning. 

VersaShield™ is proven to kill up to 99.5% of bacteria within 2 hours.

The Journey of the Red Bag

Versapak Red Bag Pathway Scheme in the Royal Borough of Greenwich/Bexley

Following the successful pilot scheme in the London Boroughs of Sutton & Kingston, Versapak, in collaboration with the Commissioning Manager for South East London CCG, delivered tools and education to drive the message.  Stephanie Watts commented saying:

"Thanks to Versapak, we have been able to promote the Red Bag Pathway at event stalls in hospitals within our borough."

With plenty of room for clothing and a smaller pocket to hold the patient's personal items such as medication, identification or jewellery, the Red Bag is fitted with a tamper evident sealing system.  When secured with Versapak's T2 Security Seal you can be sure that the contents can be transported in a tamper evident manner.  The seal acts as a deterrent against anyone tampering with the contents.
