Getting the price right: Calculating the cost of home care

Published: 22/05/2019

With councils setting their budgets for next year, we are encouraging our local authority commissioners to watch UKHCA's new webinar, "Getting the priceright: Calculating the cost of homecare".

Our professional association, United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA), recently ran a webinar featuring a presentation on: "Getting the price right: Calculating the price of homecare".

A recording of the presentation and a handout, which contains the slides and explanatory text, can be downloaded from the "Getting the price right: Calculating the cost of homecare" webpage. The recording takes just 20 minutes to watch.

Presented by UKHCA's Policy Director, Colin Angel, the webinar covers:

Why getting the price right is important for both councils and providers; 

How a minimum price for homecare is calculated; 

Some important issues which make a real difference to the price of homecare; 

Links to other materials and resources.

This presentation complements the latest version of UKHCA's briefing Minimum price for homecare (Version 5.1), and UKHCA's on-line Costing Model, which are also available for providers and commissioners.
