9. Motions

Additional documents:


By Councillor McKenzie - Care Homes

By Councillor McKenzie – Care Homes


1)         Notes that on 21 March 2023, Policy & Sustainability Committee agreed that:

a)         'the council’s role as a care provider is best met through council owned and operated care homes'

b)         'CECs presumption going forward should be in favour of an in-house model’

2)         Is concerned that the upcoming Care Home Public Consultation may focus specifically on proposals to decommission four council care homes, with no consideration given to options for replacement care provision.

3)         Believes that consideration of the decommissioning of the four care homes in isolation risks a significant reduction in the council's ability to provide care through council owned and operated care homes.

4)         Requests that the Chief Executive intervenes to broaden the scope of the consultation to include the development of options for replacement care provision in the event that any council care homes are decommissioned.

5)         Requests a report to this committee within 2 cycles, outlining options for expanding council provision of long term care, including upgrading existing care homes, building new care homes and acquiring care homes from private providers.”
