North Wales Domiciliary Care Providers Agreement.
This procurement project is the culmination of a commissioning process seeking to achieve the following benefits:
1) Good quality domiciliary care services that deliver ‘what matters’ (as defined by stakeholders to mean flexible, relationship centred and outcome focussed).
2) Affordable (whole life / best value) services.
3) A sustainable and diverse market (meeting Welsh language needs and providing appropriate ‘specialist’ care and support e.g. enhanced workforce standards for supporting people with complex behaviour, acquired brain or spinal injury etc.).
4) Standardised procurement processes, provider terms and conditions across the region — where possible and beneficial.
5) Standardised care pathways / internal process (assessment, reablement, brokerage, invoicing and payments) across North Wales — where possible and beneficial and where this can make efficiencies or deliver benefits across the ‘whole system’.
This description is continued in the PIN notice attachment.
This project is being undertaken by Denbighshire Council on behalf of the 7 health and social care commissioning authorities of North Wales region — Isle of Anglesey County Council, Gwynedd County Council, Conwy County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council, Flintshire County Council, Wrexham County Borough Council and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (subject to confirmation).
This project will evaluate the quality of registered domiciliary care providers (or companies that have submitted an application for registration) using MEAT criteria (most economically advantageous tender — in terms of price, quality and social value). Successful bidders will be awarded an agreement to provide domiciliary care services in North Wales and will be ranked by overall score. Commissioners will be able to call-off against the list of providers using a range of allocation procedures to be defined within the tender documents.
