How we propose to purchase domiciliary care provided by non-statutory providers

Closed 26 Jan 2018

Opened 27 Oct 2017


The Northern Trust currently provides domiciliary care services to over 5,000 service users in their own homes. Domiciliary care is the term used to describe a range of social care services put in place to support a service user in their own home. These services are currently delivered by both statutory and non-statutory providers. Non- statutory service providers include a range of independent providers such as private companies and voluntary organisations.

The document below outlines our proposed new arrangements for purchasing domiciliary care services from non-statutory providers.  This includes domiciliary care provided for older people, people with a physical, sensory or learning disability, people with a mental health condition and children and young people.  Through these proposed new arrangements we intend to ensure that going forward domiciliary care services meet the needs of our population.

In developing the proposal we have engaged with our service users and carers and they have told us what is important to them when receiving domiciliary care services.  We want to make sure that our contract model reflects their views.

We welcome your views on our proposal and this document outlines how you can tell us what you think.  At the heart of our plans are the people who use domiciliary care services.  We look forward to this period of consultation to give us an opportunity to listen to your views and to develop services for the future.
