CHC Assessments

We regularly see care packages costing hundreds of thousands agreed upon within Adult Social Care. The truth is that many of these should be funded by Health, not the Local Authority.
With Local Authorities under tremendous financial pressure, it’s more important than ever to transfer eligible service users over to CHC funding.

We know this is easier said than done.

Most social workers don’t have the knowledge or confidence to advocate for individuals during a Decision Support Tool meeting. This, combined with barriers in Health commissioning, means Councils are spending millions on packages of care that should be spent elsewhere.

Socia Partners are offering an opportunity for Local Authorities to relieve pressure in two directions. Our CHC delivery service takes control of DSTs to free up your workforce and make large-scale savings for the Local Authority. We don’t charge unreasonable contract fees: pay per assessment and when savings are achieved. Use our CHC cost savings calculator on the pricing page to estimate your potential savings when partnering with us or Contact us today for a personalized quote for your Council.

Here’s a real-life example:

How one Council is using this method to achieve significant savings:

An average of 28 DSTs completed each week, leaving permanent members of staff to focus on long-term cases.

A two-year contract with almost £1m saved in the first 9 weeks.

Incentives encourage staff to achieve results for you and for individuals.

We have a network of trusted, talented social workers across the country and can scale our CHC projects to meet your needs.

How does your service differ from traditional locum social work?

Rather than your Local Authority hiring agency social workers on short-term hourly contracts, ours is a direct social work delivery service. We specialize in clearing backlogs of overdue reviews, clearing waiting lists for initial assessments and

Another huge benefit of our service is how it reduces pressure on your senior members of staff. Unlike locum social workers, who require supervision and frequent input from seniors and managers, we manage projects in house. This saves time, protects workloads and is more cost effective.

Are there any risks to my Local Authority?

We pride ourselves on our risk free strategies. You will only ever pay for work that is completed, which gives you peace of mind that funding is being used effectively to meet measurable outcomes. We’d love to talk through our pricing options with you to demonstrate how we can guarantee this.

Which Councils have you worked with?

Our staff have completed projects for Warwickshire County Council, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, Lincolnshire County Council and Coventry City Council to name a few. We’re able to partner with any Local Authority in England or Wales, and many of our social workers have duel registrations.
