Title of the contract
North Wales Domiciliary Care Quality Approved Provider List
Description of the contract

The six North Wales Local Authorities are working together as the North Wales Social Services Improvement Collaborative (NWSSIC) to bring about service improvements through collaboration. One of its collaborative projects is to develop a regional quality approved provider list of domiciliary care providers. NWSSIC is also working collaboratively with the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) and this process will be a joint approval process for health and social care domiciliary care provision.

Having one approval process across North Wales will enable Providers to be quality approved through a single application which will then enable them to accept work from Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham Councils and BCUHB in all six County areas.

The object of the qualification process is to assess the applicant’s responses to the questionnaire and (where required) conduct a verification visit and select Providers to populate a North Wales Quality Approved Providers List for Domiciliary Care for Local Authorities and Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board within the North Wales region. This application (as a Pre Qualification Questionnaire) and resulting approved list may be used by any Authority as a qualification stage of a tender process during the lifetime of the list, however there are currently no plans for Authorities to do so.
