Northern Health & Social Care Trust: How we propose to purchase domiciliary care provided by non-statutory providers

30 October 2017

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.


The Northern Trust are now proposing new arrangements for purchasing domiciliary care services from non-statutory providers with a tender process commencing April / May 2018.  This includes domiciliary care provided for older people, people with a physical, sensory or learning disability, people with a mental health condition and children and young people. 

The consultation document can be found on the Trust’s website

At the heart of our plans are the people who use domiciliary care services.  A consultation questionnaire is available on our website for you to complete, however, we welcome your comments in any format.  Please send your comments to the Equality Unit by 26 January 2018.
