Dear Sir/Madam

 

Your request for information ref. SOT81126

 

Section 8(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 sets out the
requirements of a valid request and says that a request must, amongst
other things, 'state the name of the applicant and address for
correspondence'.

 

As you have not provided a name, your request is not valid under the terms
of the Act.

 

ICO guidance states “a title and/or first name with surname satisfies the
requirement for provision of a real name”.

 

If you wish to continue with your request, please contact
[1][Stoke on Trent City Council request email] and provide a name to which we can correspond.

 

Yours sincerely

FOI, Stoke on Trent City Council

Dear Ms Williams

 

Your request for information ref. SOT81126 about rates paid to independent
providers for older people's care

 

We have now considered your request and a copy of the information is
attached below.

 

The information supplied may be used for domestic or journalistic
purposes. Its use for commercial gain including issuing to the public,
social media or computer blogs may be subject to the issue of a licence
under the Reuse of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015.

 

1.    The minimum, maximum and average rates paid weekly to independent
providers for the delivery of personal care.

 

Response: Rates are not broken down in regards to personal care in this
way. There may be additional costs for someone receiving additional care,
but these often fluctuate from provider-to-provider. However, we have
provided the minimum, maximum and average costs that the City Council pays
per week for a placement in a Residential Care Home, which is the whole
cost, inclusive of such things as rent, meeting dietary requirements,
additional staffing, waking night support etc.

 

Minimum Average Maximum
Residential £468 £558.21 £668.53
Residential with Dementia £489 £620.66 £1,610.03

2.    The minimum, maximum and average rates paid weekly to independent
providers for the delivery of nursing care?

 

Response: As with the answer above we do not have the information about
individual elements of the cost and therefore we have submitted the
information as showing the Minimum, Maximum and Average costs for the
entire placement in a Nursing Home. The figures are showed exclusive of
Funded Nursing Care which is paid by the Health Authority and not by the
City Council. Therefore the total cost for the placement will be price
quoted below, plus Funded Nursing Care (currently this is £165.56 per
week).

 

Minimum Average Maximum
Nursing £488 £565.50 £1,118.75
Nursing with Dementia £508 £875.01 £2,994.97
       

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision,
you should write to: The Information Rights Manager, Information Rights
Team, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Floor 2, Civic Centre, Glebe Street,
ST4 1HH, or email [1][Stoke on Trent City Council request email].

 

If, after contacting us, you are not content with the outcome, you may ask
the Information Commissioner for a decision. Before doing this, please see
the following link for guidance from the Information Commissioner relating
to how to use your information rights responsibly and effectively, to
enable you to gain the best outcome from the process -

Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you
