FOI Request - Care Home Quality Payments

Request 101000401208

I am writing to request information, in relation to the commissioning of care home places by the council.

Under the terms of the National Care Home Contract for 2015/6, councils reward improvement and encourage high standards using quality awards and enhanced quality awards for those performing well in inspections and penalties for those achieving poor inspection scores. A similar mechanism was incorporated in the National Care Home fee Settlement covering 2014/15.
