Staffordshire County Council is considering the feasibility of commissioning an experienced Care Home Provider (with nursing) to manage, run and staff several County Council owned care homes across the County, for the delivery of high quality nursing care. Staffordshire County Council has identified a need for additional care homes with nursing capacity across the County, and consequently would like to gauge market interest in delivering care with nursing provision as part of an innovative unique service solution. It is intended that this service solution will allow the Council to achieve cost effective placements for individuals with nursing needs and also improve the Council's ability to place efficiently. There may be a number of sites with differing mobilisation dates. It is anticipated that all nursing beds will be for the sole use of the Council. The Council are keen to hear from providers who can deliver both general, dementia and nursing needs, and able to demonstrate that they can manage complex admissions in a timely manner, with a high percentage of admissions likely to come direct from an acute setting.
