Public meetings giving patients a chance to find out more about Shropshire Walk-In proposals and have your say

Venue: Mayfair Community Centre, Easthope Road, Church Stretton, SY6 6BL
Name: Shropshire CCG
Email: [email protected]
Telephone: 01743 277500
Event description: Three public events have been organised to allow Shropshire people to find out more about proposals to relocate the county’s NHS Walk-In Centre. Others are on 31st July at Shrewsbury & 4th August at Wem (details on this website under “events tab”)

It will also give you a chance to have your say ahead of a final decision on the future of walk-in care in Shropshire, which will be taken by the CCG later in the year.

The proposals do not include the GP practice that is based at Monkmoor – this will remain in the same location and will continue to provide GP care for its registered patients.

Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), working with The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and the Shropshire Walk-In Centre, is looking at the possibility of moving the walk-in element of care from Monkmoor in Shrewsbury so that it is co-located with the Accident & Emergency department on the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) site.

NHS England, the organisation responsible for GP services, will be at this Shrewsbury meeting (31st July) to address any specific questions people have about the GP surgery.

Anyone not able to go to one of the meetings can still give their view by filling out a questionnaire on the CCG website www.shropshireccg.nhs.uk and can also let the CCG know their views by emailing [email protected]

End Date:
11th August 2014

Start Time:
5.30 pm

End Time:

Event title: Equality Assessment Consultation re Closure of Walk in Centre at Monkmoor, Shrewsbury (Final Opportunity)
Venue: Bridgnorth Committee Room, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury SY2 6ND
Name: Shropshire CCG
Email: [email protected]
Telephone: 01743 277500
Event description: There are proposals to close the Walk in Centre at Monkmoor, Shrewsbury & relocate it next to A&E at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
Shropshire CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) has until 22 August to complete consultations on this proposal. They know this timescale is unacceptably short, but it’s due to factors outside their control.
General public meetings are set up in Shrewsbury on 31 July, and in Wem and Church Stretton the following week. (see details under “events tab” on this website) These won’t give a proper basis for an equality impact assessment so this is the last of three meetings being organised about this. 

More details of this meeting will be published once they are available.

All meeting rooms are accessible; either on the level for the Executive Dining Room or by lift to the Committee Rooms floor.

Shropshire CCG is happy to pay travel expenses for people attending and contributing.

Does this impact on you, your family, those you care for? If so, & you have not been able to attend the meeting on the 4th or 7th August do try and attend this last meeting. Thank You.

Signal

Signal’s summer news from Shropshire & Africa

The sun is streaming in through the window as I write to you today, and the sun has certainly been shining on Signal’s projects to help break down the barriers to independence – in social, economic and political life – for people who are deaf or who have hearing impairments. 

In the attached Summer Issue of Wave, Signal’s Chairman Rod Clark announces a momentous development in Shropshire, and our International Programmes Manager Karen Goodman-Jones gives a personal account of the work which is giving deaf children and young people in Uganda and Tanzania a better and a fairer start in life.  Our partners in Zambia are also the subject of The Wave Interview

With all this sunny news, we must not forget that there is much more to do and much hard work to come, as evidenced by requests to our partners in Uganda to expand the programme there, so that deaf children in neighbouring areas can enjoy the same “fairer start.”  There is a suggestion at the end of Wave, too, of how you may be able to help the industrious deaf students in Tanzania on their path towards an independent future. 

Please do share Wave with people you know, particularly if they live in Shropshire, so that ever more people can benefit from our ongoing local initiatives, such as the Sign Language classes.  We will update you on our busy programme in Malawi in the Autumn Issue, but do also keep an eye on our website, if you can, to keep in touch with Signal’s news in the UK and Africa in between times: http://www.signal.org.uk/category/news/

Funding Residential or Nursing Care Fees

Funding care fees, fully or even partially, can be an expensive business. Understanding, therefore, what the state provides plus being clear about costs and affordability is essential. This article seeks to outline information which any self-funders should know. 

About the 12-week property disregard

Where, excluding your property, your capital is below the threshold – in England and Northern Ireland, £23,250; in Wales, £24,000; and in Scotland, £26,000 (2014/15) – and your income is insufficient to meet the care fees, the local authority can assist with the costs for the first 12 weeks of permanent care. Any financial help beyond that period, however, will be a loan against the value of your property and recovered from the eventual proceeds of its sale. 

About deferred payments agreements

If social services has assessed you as needing care and your capital is below the threshold, they can lend you the funds to pay for care, to be repaid from the proceeds of your property when it is ultimately sold. There is, however, a limit to the amount they will lend you. Plus it could also adversely affect your means-tested benefit entitlements. 

About Council Tax exemption

Should you move into care and leave your property unoccupied, you should be entitled to a full exemption from Council Tax until it’s sold. 

About Pension Credit and Severe Disability Addition

If you are entitled to Attendance Allowance, then subject to your savings and income, you may be entitled to claim Pension Credit with a Severe Disability Addition, but only where your property is on the market. If it is not on the market, it will almost certainly be treated as capital and affect your entitlement to this benefit. 

About Attendance Allowance

Attendance Allowance is a non-means-tested, non-taxable allowance paid at the lower rate of £54.45 per week to those needing care by day or night, and at a higher rate of £81.30 per week for those needing care both by day and night. 

About Registered Nursing Care Contributions

Irrespective of whether your stay in care is temporary or permanent, if the care home provides nursing care, the NHS makes a Registered Nursing Care Contribution. This currently amounts to weekly contributions of £110.89 in England, £120.55 in Wales, £100.00 in Northern Ireland and £75.00 (plus £166.00 for personal care) in Scotland and is paid directly to the care home. 

About the National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare

Where your needs are primarily healthcare-related, you may be entitled to full care fees funding from your local Primary Care Trust following an assessment under the National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare. You can request a review of eligibility at any time. 

About local authority funding if your money runs out

Once your capital reduces to the threshold, you can seek local authority assistance. If there is any possibility that you will not be able to meet the full cost of your care in the long term, arrange an assessment of your care needs to ensure they will step in to help with the funding when required. 

About financial products to meet care costs

It is perhaps surprising that there exists only one dedicated financial product that has been specifically designed to meet care costs: the immediate needs annuity. This can provide a regular increasing income for as long as you need care, which should cap the cost of care from the outset. It is important, however, to seek advice and not to try to do it alone, as such annuities do not suit all circumstances.
