Peterborough City Council - Changes to home care contracts (ILSS framework) PE1

Location: UK » East of England » PE
Sector: Social care

Issue: Changes to home care contracts (ILSS framework)

We purchase home care, also known as domiciliary care, from a number of accredited private care providers. Following the transfer of Adult Social Care back to the council from the NHS we have been reviewing the current arrangements and how much we pay for care.

Our proposed changes will lead to savings on contracts and make it more straight forward and efficient for the council to purchase this type of care. Savings will be achieved without any detriment to service users. An example of this is to reduce and simplify the number of rates that can be charged by providers to the council for use of their care services.

These proposals will save £600k in 2013/14 and will rise to £1m a year from 2014/15.

2013/14 £k: 600
2014/15 £k: 1000
2015/16 £k: 1000
2016/17 £k: 1000
2017/18 £k: 1000
