The Council is looking to develop a Pseudo Dynamic Purchasing System (PDPS) for the provision of a Generic Domiciliary Care and Emergency Support to Carers Service. It is expected that the PDPS will operate until 31st March 2024, with an option to extend for a further 12 months, making the possible final end date of the PDPS 31st March 2025.

Appointment to the PDPS offers no guarantee of any level of business (volume or

Support is payable to Service Providers on the Council's fixed rates which are currently:
For Generic Domiciliary Care Service:
Hourly rate of £18.50 per hour (pro rata)
Travel Payment of £1.50 per address visited

For Emergency Support to Carers Service:
Hourly rate of £24.98 per hour
Emergency Support Mileage rate £0.45 per mile

The rates will be reviewed for 2023/24 taking into consideration relevant factors such as the National Minimum Wage, the National Living Wage and any annual local government finance settlement made to the Council. Thereafter the rates will be reviewed on an annual basis at the Council's discretion in accordance with Clause 55 Charges (Price and Payment) of the Pseudo Dynamic Purchasing System for the Provision of a Generic Domiciliary Care and Emergency Support to Carers Service.
