Results

The personalisation engagement team visited 900 people who use home care services to discuss their options when the home care contracts are retendered on 1st October. The result of the consultation is that 450 people chose to use an Individual Service Fund to manage their home care service, 400 people chose a managed service and the remainder either chose a direct payment or are waiting for the outcome of the re-tender before making a decision.

Actions Taken

We have created a register of ISF providers and between now and 30th September 14 will be transferring people's home care packages to the provider of their choice.
