Newcastle city council - introduction of caps on high-cost care packages NE99
The council’s budget papers contain a proposal to introduce a cap on high cost care packages.
From the budget:
“We plan to put in place a funding panel that will authorise all high cost care packages to new and existing users. Packages costing more than £500 per
week will be reassessed with a maximum upper limit of spending on care packages to meet each person’s individual needs. We will implement this
over the next two years. The upper limits principle is already applied to services for older people.”
