Care Navigation sourcing update (domiciliary care)

Hospital discharge referrals sourcing domiciliary care

(Updated 23 March 2020 )

No requirement to source the provider via Oracle

  • Framework providers in the first instance from the lot and zone and please alternate whom you contact first where possible.
  • If unsuccessful, Non-Framework providers can be approached to assist sourcing.
  • Once a provider has been identified – this package will be issued on Oracle direct to the relevant provider - this step should not delay discharge.

Community referrals sourcing domiciliary care

  • Round 1 to be undertaken - Framework providers approached (appropriate zone and lot) using oracle sourcing.
  • If unsuccessful at Round 1, Non-Framework providers can be approached to assist sourcing. This can be completed via telephone.

Ensure care Navigation and Contract Management are updated if there are any key changes to your key care sourcing contact details.
