HCC are working with both Herts CCGs to tender for a new care home bed model, Integrated Rehabilitation Beds. This will replace a variety of current models such as Intermediate Care, Enablement, Stepdown, non-weight-bearing and discharge to assess.
A tender opportunity is expected to be placed during August on www.supplyhertfordshire.uk and the new model is expected to commence from 1.4.17. The tender is expected to ask for several care homes to offer 8-10 beds with a flexible level of therapy input depending on each individual’s needs.
Further details are in the below document.
Care home providers are invited to a workshop to hear more about the proposal and give their feedback. The same workshop will be repeated on each side of the county from midday to 4 pm. Providers should contact Admin.BST@hertfordshire.gov.uk to register an interest on thee workshop on the 11th July in Stevenage.
