How we propose to purchase domiciliary care provided by non-statutory providers

The Northern Trust currently provides domiciliary care services to over 5,000 service users in their own homes. Domiciliary care is the term used to describe a range of social care services put in place to support a service user in their own home. These services are currently delivered by both statutory and non-statutory providers. Non- statutory service providers include a range of independent providers such as private companies and voluntary organisations.

We are now consulting on our proposed new arrangements for purchasing domiciliary care services from non-statutory providers with a tender process commencing April / May 2018.
