Description

The purpose of the Specialised Services in Care Homes Framework is to enable the Council and its Health Partners to work with the Care Homes Sector to rapidly commission services that provide a level of additionality or specialism that is over and above the existing care home commissioning arrangements. The Framework will have two Lots; block and spot. Block arrangements are when beds are purchased on a guaranteed basis at a set price. This means that Providers would be required to keep these beds available to the Council and that the beds would be funded regardless of use. Spot Placements are when beds are purchased on an individual basis. Spot Placements depend on availability (if a Provider has beds available) and are only funded when in use.
