Nottinghamshire County Council fee rates for older people’s care homes and care homes with nursing, depends on the quality of the home. The evidence for this is collected by an annual quality audit of every older person’s care home within the county.
The quality audit is in two parts, care quality and environmental factors. The results from the audit from these two areas are then combined which gives the fee band for the home.
The Bands are 1 to 5, with band 1 being the lowest quality band and Band 5 the highest. During any particular year a further quality audit may be carried out and the band level of the home may increase, decrease or remain the same. So the fee paid to each home may alter each year according to any changes in the quality of that home.
