Description of the contract
Some people may find additional flexibility and control over their support by employing their own personal assistants (PAs) directly rather than purchasing home care via an agency as is the current norm. The National Pilot demonstrated that the thoughtful delegation of some clinical tasks (that would normally be carried out by registered professionals) to PAs can give individuals increased flexibility and control over how their care is delivered, improving their wellbeing. It is the CCGs’ responsibility to ensure that PAs receive adequate training, supervision and competency assessment before a task is formally delegated to them. A clinical delegation policy has been created in Surrey to document an acceptable framework for the formal delegation of such clinical tasks. Surrey CCGs are inviting tenders from organisations who can provide training, assessment and supervision services as appropriate for PHB holders to support either the required non-clinical training needs (e.g. moving and handling, first aid, fire safety, food safety) and/or clinical training needs (see below for examples), that have been identified and agreed in an individual’s care support plan.
