We have vacancies that have persisted beyond the 90 day period and the Council is therefore no longer paying the shared element hours of these. What is the Council’s response to our concerns that these costs are no longer being covered for us?

The Council is unable to pay the shared hour element on a vacancy beyond the 90 day period. Where a vacancy persist beyond that period, the Council would want to work with the provider to establish why, and would try and help either in finding a new referral, or helping the provider structure their service configuration for sustainability and to best meet local demand.
