Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has a requirement for contracted patient home support. This will include:
a. Night Sitting in Berkshire West BHFT Localities (which includes Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire). Night sitting is normally between 22:00 and 07:00 and is required 7 days a week.
b. Care packages for patients receiving home based intermediate care across Berkshire West. The majority of care packages will be required for patients within the Newbury and surrounding area. In addition however we are looking for a small level of additional flexibility to cover care packages in the wider Berkshire West area – including in Reading and Wokingham. It is predicted that no more than 10% of care capacity will be requested outside the Newbury locality area. Care packages are normally between the hours of 08:00 and 22:00 and are required 7 days a week.
