Fee Rates Paid to Residential and Nursing Homes
I am making this freedom of information request in order to obtain information on the fee rates paid to independent sector nursing and residential homes for the care of individuals for whom the council accept financial responsibility. I have already requested this information directly from your commissioning department, but as I’ve not received a response, I am now making a request through FOI.
The information is required for publication in a report for LaingBuisson’s monthly newsletter Community Care Market News’ (CCMn). Please find attached the annual survey form relating to usual costs paid by local authorities for nursing and residential care. We do not necessarily need this to be completed, an existing document outlining any change in rates since 2015/16 financial year and the fees for elderly and dementia nursing and residential care for the current 2016/17 financial year would suffice (but please see the attached for full details).
I would really appreciate your help in this matter as we urgently need this information for our annual report and subsequent analysis.
The information requested can be found here.
