Adult Services Freedom Of Information, Bury Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Jamie

             

Request for Information - Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) - 7822

 

I write further to your e-mail received by the Council on 21st September
2017 where you made the following request for information regarding Adult
Social Care in Bury

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11. The authorities' current market positioning statement for Adult Social
Care

The Council’s response to your request is as follows;

 

1. Approximately 4,000 hours per week is commissioned.

2. The estimated Annual Spend is £4.5 million.

3. The care is delivered under spot contracts.

4. A standard rate of £14.60 for domiciliary care is paid by Bury Council.

5. A retender for domiciliary care services is now expected in 2022

6. Bury Council is still in the process of finalising new domiciliary care
contracts and the award notice of a recent tender will be made in December
2017, it is considered if the information requested under this question
was disclosed it would be likely to prejudice the commercial interests of
the Council and the organisations who have been awarded the contract.

 

We can provide you with the current contract holders, please advise if you
require this information or submit your request again in December 2017
when this will be in the public domain.

 

7. All care is commissioned by the Provider Relationship Team – contact
email [1][email address]

8. Current providers are not required to provide real-time electronic
monitoring directly to the local authority. Under new contracts to be
implemented over the coming months , information containing the actual
electronic record of the visits will be required by the Local authority
for payment purposes, the systems to be used are not specified but it must
meet the councils specification for finance related systems.

9. There are currently 588 customers receiving a direct payment from Bury
Council, unfortunately the number of average hours per week is not
collected for any purpose.

10. The local authority has not joint commissioned this service with
health partners.

Care can be found at the following site
