Residential and Nursing Home Care

Devon County Council, NEW and SD&T Clinical Commissioning Groups are working in partnership to re-commission residential and nursing care services for users aged 18 to end of life. It is anticipated that a new joint contracting arrangement will be in place within the 2019/20 financial year.

In preparation for this new contract we are developing a more personalised approach to the provision of residential care across Devon. On the 4th June 2018 we implemented a new personalised fee model for older people placements, which we are now looking to expand to younger adults.
