Shropshire Council 250-253

Public Consultation review of Residential and Nursing Bed Rates

Start Date:
18th March 2019

End Date:
26th April 2019

Start Time:
00.01

End Time:
23.59

Shropshire Council are seeking views on the review of the published rates for residential and nursing beds funded by Shropshire Local Authority. The document:

  1. Outlines the commissioning policy direction to create a sustainable market place
  2. Sets out a proposed model and rates for the purposes of the consultation to seek views on the review of the currently published rates.

Shropshire Council wish to receive feedback from anyone with an interest in the prices they pay for beds so that relevant views and evidence can be considered in deciding the best way forward.

Impact assessment:
The Proposed review of Residential and Nursing Bed Rates consultation document has been subject to an Equality and Social Inclusion Impact Assessment (ESIIA)

 

Councillor Lee Chapman, Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care writes:

“Our transformed adult social work model is based upon a clear set of principles that includes maximising the use of resources and developing resilient communities.

Shropshire Council believes that creating and maintaining a sustainable and vibrant market place that offers real choice for individuals who need residential and nursing care is vital in Shropshire.

We also want to facilitate key partnerships with local communities and work collaboratively with our partners to provide high standards in care to meet the care needs of our residents.

Our current arrangements for commissioning of residential and nursing beds is being reviewed to ensure that we can meet the evolving needs of our population.  This is during a time of significant change in the way that public services are funded, commissioned and delivered. We need to work with our provider market to ensure that the way we commission residential and nursing care is fair, supports a sustainable market and allows the Council to demonstrate value for money.

The scale of pressures for the county, including an aging population and downward funding from central government means that we need to do things differently to make a permanent improvement for our residents and communities.

We are suggesting a new approach for commissioning and funding of Local Authority funded beds in residential and nursing care homes.

This is the beginning of the review and starts with a consultation on the review of the rates used for the commissioning of beds in residential and nursing homes.

We hope you will share your views”.

Versus Arthritis

Have aids and adaptations helped you?

The charity Versus Arthritis (Arthritis Care) are looking for people to take part in their Room to Manoeuvre campaign.

  • Do you live with arthritis, or another musculoskeletal condition?
  • Do you use any aids and adaptations to help you at home? Aids can include shoe horns, two-handled saucepans or electric tin openers, whereas adaptations are things like widened doorways, ramps, lever taps and wet rooms.

Your responses will help Versus Arthritis understand the difference that aids and adaptations can make to people with arthritis, and give them strong evidence which will be used to persuade the Government to do everything it can to support people to access the aids and adaptations they need.

If you don’t use any aids or adaptations at the moment, they would still be very interested to hear about why this is.

People with arthritis across the UK can respond to this survey, and the answers you provide will be treated in confidence. The survey should take around between 5 and 10 minutes to complete depending on your experience, and you can skip sections when you have nothing to share.

Click here to take part in the survey: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/aidsandadaptations/

Note: Shropshire Disability Network have reviewed the survey and it is totally optional whether you give any personal details ie name, email, contact details.

The survey will be open until Sunday 3 March 2019

If you have questions before you take part, you can email our campaigns team on [email protected]
