Provider fee review consultation 2020

Care home providers’ views are being sought about the proposed changes to the structure and processes involved in making and reviewing residential and nursing care placements. This consultation on the review is part one of a two-stage process.

The council recognises the vital contribution that care and nursing homes make in Leicestershire and that for many people a care home is the only service that can offer the care and support they need.

The current arrangements for determining the fees for care homes in Leicestershire have not been reviewed since 2011 and the core contract and specifications for residential care have not been reviewed since 2012.

The Care Act 2014 placed new responsibilities on the council which means these documents need to be revised to reflect the Care Act changes as well as changes made following this consultation.

What's being reviewed

The council is now conducting a review of

  • the fees it pays for residential and nursing care home placements in the county
  • the services it expects for those fees
  • the way in which it makes placements
