Healthwatch Service – Provider Engagement Event reference 00005126

Warwickshire County Council, Public Health would like to invite potential service providers to attend workshop to consult on the local Healthwatch service which will be out to tender at the end of 2017.

Why are we doing this consultation?

The local Healthwatch service was last commissioned in 2013.  Over recent years there has been a significant change in the demand for health and social care services, with increasing numbers of service users with more complex needs, accessing Healthwatch services.

In order to address these changing needs, Warwickshire wants to work closely with service users and key partners to review the service delivery model for a new local Healthwatch service. The new service will focus on delivering outcomes based around Healthwatch England’s Quality Statements.

This consultation and the following work will inform the proposed service model:

  • Leeds Beckett Independent Review 2016
  • Discussions with commissioners of other local Healthwatch services

We want to hear your views

This consultation provides an opportunity for you to shape and influence Warwickshire’s new local Healthwatch service, by providing your views on the proposed service model. We want to work with you to ensure that we appropriately shape the service to meet the needs of service users.

The event will take place on Monday 18 September 2017 at 09:30 – 12:00 and will be held in Northgate House Conference Centre, Saltisford, Warwick, CV34 4JL.

Please register for the event via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/healthwatch-provider-engagement-event-tickets-36997559697

Contract Award – Care Homes Refresh 2 (Project Reference – 00004132)

People Group – Strategic Commissioning

This tender was to allow further organisations to apply for a contract to provide care home services to WCC and the CCG’s, following the original tender earlier this year.

Warwickshire County Council (the Authority) is seeking to re-commission its contracts for care home placements. At the same time NHS South Warwickshire Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS Warwickshire North Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG’s) are also seeking to re-commission their care home provision following conclusion of their previous framework.

The Authority is acting as lead commissioner in this procedure.

This tender is for all care home services for older people and adults with support needs which includes (but is not limited to):
– Residential and nursing;
– Physical disabilities;
– Learning disabilities and/or autism;
– Mental health needs;
– Dementia;
– Sensory impairment;
– Acquired brain injury;
– Cognitive impairment;
– Continuing healthcare.

The Authority also intends to use these new contracts to commission a range of care home based initiatives. These services may also be subject to other modifications and changes in order to meet the changing needs and demands of the Authority, the CCG’s and the customers.

The new contracts are for the provision of care home services within the County Council boundaries of Warwickshire County Council, or where the customer is a patient of the Clinical Commissioning Group then the location where they live, which is generally within a reasonable distance of the boundaries.

Coventry City Council and NHS Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group intend to re-commission their care home services through separate arrangements. However it is possible that they may access care home services through these contracts in the future.

Details of all providers included within this framework are included in the attached sheet.
