Care England Sub 5% Fee Uplift Provider Support Process – Mar 22

Anthony Collins Solicitors – Funding for Learning Disability Services Report Nov 21 and Funding for Older Persons Services Jan 22 – reports have been commissioned by Care England to assist its members when engaging in discussions and disputes with commissioners of health and personal care services for adults with a learning disability and Older Persons. The reports commence with an explanation of the legal framework in which services are commissioned, separated into residential care, supported living and NHS funded Continuing Healthcare services. They will enable members to gain a clear understanding of the legal context in which Commissioners are meant to operate when agreeing, reviewing, and setting fees for services.  The report is supported by template letters. Care England members are entitled to adapt the letters in accordance with their own style and to edit them for the circumstances they wish to address.  Members should not share the document or letters outside of their organisations.  If members require any assistance with regard to particular circumstances, or wish to institute a wider-ranging project to address cost recovery issues, Anthony Collins Solicitors would be delighted to assist and members should contact either of the following: John.wearing@anthonycollins.com or Ramjeet.kandola@anthonycollins.com.

We have also provided a flow chart to assist members with a route to challenge commissioners and when to feedback to Care England or to seek input from Care England where joint intervention may be more appropriate.
