Councillor Dorcas Binns, Cabinet Member for Older People, sought approval to introduce Electronic Call Monitoring across all externally commissioned domiciliary care services.
Having considered all of the information, including known proposals and reasons for the recommendations, Cabinet
RESOLVED to: -
1) Approve the introduction of Electronic Call Monitoring across externally commissioned domiciliary care services in Gloucestershire, and
2) Authorise the Commissioning Director: Adults and DASS to conduct separate contract negotiations under the ESPO Framework, (in accordance with the rules of that framework and the Public Contracts Regulations 2015), to purchase provider licenses from CM2000 for a 7 year term. This will enable external domiciliary care service providers and internal Gloucestershire County Council staff to use the Electronic Call Monitoring System for the purposes of recording actual support worker visit detail within the domiciliary care contract.
