Gloucestershire County Council

Logo for Gloucestershire County CouncilThe Council commissioned Valuing Care to undertake a cost review of care home services for working age  adults. The purpose of the review was to help the Council update its ‘Residential Pricing Tool,’ which was no longer considered fit for purpose.

Through established processes Valuing Care undertook a survey of care home costs to identify the usual cost of providing services locally. The cross corroboration of the survey results with Valuing Care’s cost model, and national database comparator, provided the Council with clear guidance of what represents a fair rate for care home services.

Key Benefits:

  • Established processes for engaging care home providers and evidencing the usual cost of providing services.
  • Cross corroboration of local survey results with Valuing Care’s national database comparator.
  • Increased intelligence about the range of fees charged to different customer groups, levels of profitability, market efficiency and sustainability.
