Objective A - Enabling choice and control for people who have care needs


  • Working with providers to try to ensure current provision is flexible and able to meet the changing needs of people.
  • Where there is not sufficient provision, the Council will explore establishing our own services, or with Strategic partners where appropriate, subject to individual business cases. The Council have already established our own care homes in areas where there wasn’t sufficient capacity to meet demand and are currently exploring the development of nursing homes in specific areas of need.
  • Increasing the amount of block booked beds within care homes across the County. This means that there should be an increased choice for people at a price the Council is prepared to pay, subject to vacancies at any given time.
  • Ensuring timely access to care home placements when required.
  • Reducing the differential in price across similar care services.
