Information for providers – approved provider list of Homecare Services

Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has established an Approved Provider List of Homecare Services. This list consists of providers who have demonstrated that they are able to offer services which meet the requirements of  Trafford CCG in relation to the delivery of Homecare Services to Trafford adults and/or children and young people  with complex health needs who qualify for NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) or children’s continuing care funding.

A selection process has now been completed, with a number of Homecare Providers now on the list and able to accept referrals for packages of care. Please note that Homecare service providers will be unable to deliver services to Trafford registered patients eligible for CHC or children’s continuing care funding where they have not been accepted onto the Approved Provider List. Only those providers on the list will be offered the opportunity to apply to deliver packages of care to eligible patients.

If you would like to apply for acceptance onto the Approved Provider List this opportunity will remain open until August 2017. To apply you will be required to complete the Trafford Homecare Service Approved Provider Application Form and demonstrate that you meet the CCG’s requirements.  Please find all required documentation below:

To apply for the acceptance onto the list please complete Document 2 – Trafford Homecare Services Approved Provider List and submit, along with any requested supporting information, by sending to trafford.homecare@nhs.net . Applications will be evaluated by the CCG’s subject matter experts once every two months and each applicant will be informed of the outcome of their application in writing. Successful applicants will then be asked to sign a copy of the NHS shorter-form Contract 2016/17 that will confirm that you will deliver services in line with requirements of the Trafford Homecare Service Specification and in-line with the standard terms and conditions of this contract. The short form contract can be accessed via the following link:  www.england.nhs.uk/nhs-standard-contract/16-17/

Homecare Providers are asked to note that acceptance onto the Approved Provider List does not guarantee a level of activity under this contract; and the suitability of a provider to deliver homecare to a patient will be determined on an individual patient basis, by Trafford CHC Team, as described within the service specification.

If you have any queries regarding this process please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Trafford Procurement Team via trafford.homecare@nhs.net or on 0161 873 9697.
