Norfolk County Council – Bank Holiday Planning for Care Providers May 2018
With the late May Bank Holiday approaching, in order to continue to support timely and safe discharges from hospital, it has been agreed that the one-off capacity incentive payments will be re-started from Wednesday 23rd May 2018 to Monday 28th May 2018 inclusive.
The incentive payments are for discharges only; this includes picking up new, or resuming care packages from the hospitals. The documents below provide further information and details on the one off capacity payments.
We would ask that you use these financial incentives to support greater capacity and responsiveness within your organisation. Facilitating a speedy discharge for people from hospital, either to their own home or to residential care, is essential to support people with maintaining their independence, but also supports the continued operation of our emergency care system. Capacity Incentive payments will have to be authorised and then administered by the Service Brokerage team and will be paid in line with your current payment schedule.
