This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.
Reason for urgency:
The external care sector has supported City of Wolverhampton Council during the Covid-19 pandemic in meeting the care needs of residents in Wolverhampton and supported the ability to discharge people from hospital and reducing the burden to the local hospital.
The fee reviews are effective from the start of the financial year. Providers will not be aware of the proposed increased if there is a delay to the next available Cabinet (Resources) Panel (CRP) and we cannot publish the rates or organise any increase in payments until CRP give approval to the recommendations.
The reason it has been delayed was an unintentional officer oversight
Decision due: 17 Mar 2021 by Cabinet (Resources) Panel
