Domiciliary Care change project
Preferred Provider Framework for Domiciliary Care
In 2014 Telford & Wrekin put a Preferred Provider Framework (the Framework) in place to support all purchasing of domiciliary care made from 1 October 2015. All new care purchasing from this date is offered to providers who are on our Framework. Work is also underway to transfer current care purchasing onto the Framework.
