Shaw Healthcare Day Services Review

Shaw Healthcare Ltd hold a contract with West Sussex County Council to provide 12 Residential Care and Nursing Homes across West Sussex. Six of these services also have a Day Service offer. In May 2018, a Cabinet decision (Report Ref: AH2 2018/19) was taken which confirmed a three phased approach to making investment in the Shaw Healthcare Ltd contract, the third phase being the review of day services.  In November 2020, as part of the Council’s savings plans, the intention was confirmed to extend the review to assess whether all of the day services are required, whether they provide best use of public money and if not, what should change in order to deliver better outcomes for people.  (Report Ref: CAB 11 20/21)


As part of the review of this provision, the County Council will now undertake a 6-week public consultation on the future of the services, with consideration of the outcomes of the review to date and the identification of savings. The process of consultation will be completed by the end of July 2021. The outcomes of the review, responses from the consultation and considerations of the Equalities Impact Assessment will then be presented to Cabinet to inform the decision on the future of the day service offer within the Shaw Healthcare Ltd services.
