Rates and fees paid to independent providers of adult social care provision in the community and in residential and nursing homes are subject to annual review. The Director of Adults and Health, having been delegated authority by the Cabinet Member for Adult Services, will be asked to consider the fees and rates paid for commissioned services related to the Adult Social Care and Health portfolio for 2022-23.
The review will consider usual maximum rates for care homes and care homes with nursing; individually agreed rates paid to care homes and care homes with nursing; shared lives; and rates and fees paid for community-based services.
In the short term, the priority continues to be to ensure that the market can cope with vulnerable people at this unprecedented time dealing with COVID-19, therefore the Council will address financial pressures resulting from the pandemic independently of this decision.
The Director of Adults and Health has approved the 2022/23 fee increases paid to independent sector providers in line with the proposals set out in section 2.2-2.26 of the body of the report.
