Care Home Commissioning for Older People
The Auditor General for Wales published this Report in December 2021 which draws from Audit Wales’ review of the commissioning of care-home placements for older people in North Wales. The study involved a range of commissioning partners but focused primarily on Isle of Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd and Wrexham Councils, and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.
Audit Wales also drew on wider audit intelligence such as the all-Wales review of the Integrated Care Fund in July 2019 and publicly available data on spending and activity. The study found that the programme has successfully brought together different parts of the Welsh public sector to quickly build a system of testing and contact tracing mostly from scratch and at a fast pace. Although the programme struggled to cope with earlier peaks of the spread of the virus, it rapidly learnt and evolved to the challenges it faced.
The Public Accounts & Public Administration Committee is currently hearing evidence as part of the inquiry, and intends to publish a report in Summer 2022.
