We plan to implement Phase 2 from June 2013. We do not plan to hold interim contracts beyond Phase 2 implementation.
Please note that under Any Qualified Provider contracts there will be no guarantees of volume in the contracts awarded. Further, prices (e.g. hourly rates) are set.
In Phase 2 we are seeking expressions of interest from:
— interim contract holders seeking to become Approved providers,
— new providers wishes to provide CHC domiciliary care services,
— phase 1 Approved providers seeking to expand their approved specialism or geographical zone.
Providers will need to be registered, in the process of registration with the Care Quality Commission in order to be considered.
The purpose of domiciliary care is to enable service users to remain in their own homes, living as independently as possible. Service Users will principally be adults aged 18 years or over with additional health needs arising from frailty, illness, accident or disability. These people, without support, would have difficulty in maintaining a reasonable standard of life in the community. The service may also be provided to give relief to an informal carer.
Services include providing:
a) Non – complex general care including End of Life (Fast track) cases
b) Complex care requiring some specialist knowledge or training to people who may suffer:
— Learning Disabilities,
— Mental Health (including Dementia),
— Physical Disabilities (including Brain Injury).
Services are provided in the following geographical zones:
