Covid-19 care home funding

In response to Covid-19, the Council and Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG) created a Covid-19 Finance Cell to address short term financial pressures for care providers.  The table below shows payments made to care providers in terms of fee uplift, provider claims and payment of block beds

Reasonable additional Covid-19 related costs have been reimbursed (provider claims). This includes staffing, such as overtime and recruiting additional agency staff; as well as additional costs of equipment and Personal Protection Equipment. The CCG considers uplift requests for non Covid-19 related cost pressures on a case by case basis.
