National Care Home Contract Reform : Results of Independent Sector Provider Survey July 2016
The input of providers to the Reform of the National Care Home Contract is of crucial importance, as whatever new arrangements are arrived at will underpin the commissioning, procurement, funding and delivery of publicly purchased care for the foreseeable future.
We therefore felt it was important to gather people’s views at the outset of the strengths and weaknesses of the current NCHC, and what they would most want any new framework to deliver. We will of course consult fully on the detail of what is proposed as this emerges.
The response to the survey in the time available was very gratifying, and has already allowed us to highlight to the other parties – Government, Councils, Health Boards, Care Inspectorate etc, the range of provider opinion.
Please read the report, let us know if you think there are any key areas which have been missed, and keep involved with the process as it gathers momentum.
We will ensure providers are kept up to date as the Reform process continues towards October and next April.
