Joint Commissioning Of Community Based Homecare and Support In Leicestershire County – The Help to Live At Home Service (HtLAH)
Leicestershire County Council, working jointly with West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group intend to commission new home-based care and support services to meet the health and social care needs of service users and carers across the county of Leicestershire.
Service users will be individuals aged over 18 who have been assessed as eligible to receive services commissioned either through the local authority or assessed by health under continuing healthcare (CHC).
One of the commissioners’ key strategic intentions is to support people to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible. In order to do this, the commissioners require a stable and robust market of providers who have an experienced, motivated and well-trained workforce who are able to deliver a high volume of affordable, consistent and high quality services.
The requirement includes a wide range of flexible services for people with varying levels of need which will include the delivery of associated social care and healthcare tasks. The aims of the service are to enable service users:
– to safely remain in their own home;
– to achieve their maximum potential through delivery of “step up” community reablement service;
– to maintain their independence by ensuring that reablement remains central to service delivery.
The service will also facilitate people’s safe and timely discharge from hospital.
The final commissioning model will be determined upon completion of an ongoing market engagement process; the next stage of which is scheduled to explore the following topics with potential service providers:
• Reablement in practice; Assistive Technology; Social Capital and developing community resources.
• Outcomes commissioning: the current market experience; delivering to outcomes, putting the service user/patient at the heart of support planning
Two identical sessions are being held as follows:
• 13th May 2015 9.00-12.30p.m.
