Respite Care Review

Lead: Leeds North

Area: Leeds North, Leeds South & East, Leeds West

Period: 1st Apr 2014 - 31st Jul 2014

The respite care review's first phase is to identify options for the respite in-patient service provided by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for 44 people to change from a health to social care model. The Joint Strategic Commissioning Executive (JSCE) receives regular progress reports.

Integral to this is the need to engage with service users and carers to:

  • Inform of the proposed changes
  • Discuss options in order to improve the model
  • Understand the views of service users and carers and incorporate these into commissioning plans
  • Outline timescales and inform service users and carers
