Dear Mr Wake,

 

Further to your recent request for information, please find below our
responses to the questions you asked:

 

1. The current average number of weekly hours commissioned to private
domiciliary care providers for Adult Social Care as of August 2017

 

·         Approximately 20,300 hours per week

 

2. The estimated Annual Spend commissioned for Adult Domiciliary Care
through private domiciliary care providers (Based on 2016)

 

·         The estimated annual spend for 2017-18 for adult domiciliary
care purchased directly by the council is £18,000,000

 

3. The type of agreements held with private domiciliary care providers
commissioned to deliver Adult Social Care services such as frameworks,
Spot Contracts, Block Contracts etc and their start/end dates

 

·         Please see Appendix 1

 

4. The lowest and highest (based on the standard daytime week day rate)
charge rates per hour of domiciliary care charged to the local authority
for Adult Social care commissioned through private domiciliary care
providers

 

·         The lowest rate agreed is £14.06

·         The highest rate agreed is £18.04

 

5. When you anticipate retendering for domiciliary care services for Adult
Social Care

 

·         We currently anticipate that the re-tendering of domiciliary
care services will  commence within the next 2 months

 

6. The names of the current Domiciliary Care Providers commissioned in
your authority to deliver Adult Social Care

 

·         Please see appendix 1 which provides details of all homecare
providers that we are currently commissioning homecare services from,
along with the start date and end date where applicable.

 

7. The contact Name, Email address and Contact number of the person
responsible for commissioning domiciliary care services in your authority

 

·         Jane Cashmore – Commissioning Manager –
[1][email address]  01159773922

 

8. Are commissioned providers required to use real-time electronic
monitoring to provide data to the local authority and if so which system?

 

·         The Council requires some, but not all, of our commissioned
providers to use the CM2000 real-time electronic monitoring system.

 

9. The number of service users currently receiving a direct payment within
your local authority as well as the number of average hours per week.

 

·         The total number of service users in receipt of a Direct Payment
as on 20 October 2017 is 3140.   This includes people who may have both a
Direct Payment and a ‘managed’ service and includes a wide range of
services such as a Personal Assistant through to a residential home – we
are therefore not able to generate the  ‘average number of hours per
week’.

 

10. Is the local authority working with health partners to commission
health funded care?

 

·         The local authority is not able to commission fully funded
health care.  It does however work with health partners to commission
jointly funded services.

Care
