Knowsley Council: Health and Social Care L36
Service: Externally Commissioned Services (incl Care Management and Safeguarding)
Title: Reduction in block purchased support available to individuals.
Impact: There will be a reduction in the amount of block purchased support available to individuals, for example day placements. This will reduce the level of unused funding which we have seen in recent years. Carers respite fund will be reduced. The use of carers respite vouchers will be reduced and contribution to pooled budgets will be reduced. We will still need to provide support but this will be purchased individually or provided via a personal budget. There will be less resource to support carers to take a break from their caring role and this may have an impact on their ability to provide long-term care. Reducing contributions to the pooled budgets will require discussion and negotiation with health colleagues.
