A group focusing on improving domiciliary care commissioning in North Wales is calling on care providers to give their views on on how the commissioning can be improved.
The North Wales Social Services Improvement Collaborative's domiciliary care project group is made up of six North Wales Local Authorities and the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. The partners have previously collaborated to develop the North Wales Regional Domiciliary Care Agreement (contract) and the North Wales Domiciliary Approved Provider Process
The aim of the group is to explore options to modernise domiciliary care services across North Wales to ensure sustainable models of services are being commissioned to help people live at home.
Project manager for the group, Maria Bell, said; "We are also keen to hear about what providers consider to be 'notable practice' either within North Wales or further afield. Initial engagement is via a written consultation document - see link below.
"Responses will help shape ongoing development work - where possible, helping commissioners to refine processes, in an effort to achieve maximum efficiency and effectiveness."
The group is calling for initial responses to be returned by January 31.
