CHC Fees 2017

LCA have written to all Lancashire CCGs calling on them to engage with us in a timely fashion to explore CHC fees and provider sustainability and market fragility issues across Lancashire. LCA is committed to engagement at a formative stage with commissioners and to working with evidence-based approaches to fee-setting.

On this page you can read our letter and our ‘core principles’ documents which we think sets out some markers from a provider point for view for discussions with commissioners and hopefully towards obtaining a shared view.

There are longer-term issues around the integration agenda that will no doubt require a proper engagement with the Lancashire and South Cumbria Change Programme but there are also immediate and critical requirements if we are to avoid loss of capacity and continued downward pressure on quality and sustainability in the sector.
