Knowsley Council: Health and Social Care L36

Location: UK » North West » L
Sector: Health, Social care

Service: Internally Commissioned Services
Title: Re-ablement - there will be a reduction in capacity of approximately 150 hours within the service.
Impact: This will be achieved by a reduction in funding resulting in less re-ablement service being delivered. This is the result of a recent review of the service, which recommended that we focus the provision of care in the morning and evening. This will mean a combination of reduction in hours for existing staff and/or a reduction in posts totalling 150 hours plus the disestablishment of three vacant posts. This will be mitigated by the development of a prioritisation model for re-ablement services and work with domiciliary care agencies to adopt a re-abling approach. There will need to be consultation with unions and staff over proposed changes.
