Principles of SDS


What is an outcome

What is an outcome?

“The aim of an outcome based approach is to shift the focus from activities to results, from how a programme operates to the good it accomplishes”

“The impact, effect or consequence of help received”

December 2007 consultation process commenced

December 2007 Consultation Process Commenced

  • Three month consultation period

  • Letters to all contracted providers

  • Presentations to West Sussex Domiciliary Care Provider groups.

  • Local independent discussion groups

  • Feedback to WSCC early March 2008

    Decision then made to progress to a new form of contract for Domiciliary Care.


Through consultation with customers commissioners and providers it became clear

Through consultation with customers, commissioners and providers it became clear:

  • New contractual arrangements would be required, to enable people to have more control over how their services are to be delivered.

  • People need simple systems to assist with making choices.

  • Providers wanted support to develop personalised services and track spend for customers under contract.


Developing the new contract

Developing the new contract

  • Outcome based specification

  • Publishable rates in a simple comparable format

  • Sharing customers stories and provider feedback through workshops

  • Promoting social inclusion through collaborative working.


Managing the money

Managing the money

  • Direct Payments

  • Indirect Payments

  • Council Managed Budgets

    (Managed Individual Accounts)

    And for the future:

  • Individual Service Funds


Provider quote from the ibsen evaluation report for the individual budgets pilot

(Provider quote from the IBSEN evaluation report for the individual Budgets pilot)

‘We have spent year after year after year brainwashing our carers. “Stick to the Care Plan, don’t do this, don’t go outside this, do this,”…

…this is a totally different, almost alien way of working’

How is WSCC supporting providers in the delivery of SDS?

  • Provider/Customer workshops to share good practice and challenges

  • Free training throughout 2009 on outcome based practice

  • Web-based information about local community services

  • A shared Excel spreadsheet to track spend and accruals of personal budgets

  • Care Commissioning Teams to work as brokers and intermediaries supporting both customers and providers.

Challenges ahead

  • To move from fitting people around services to fitting support around people

  • Being outcome focused – “it’s about getting a life not a service”

  • Supporting self-determination – choice must be real even if the budget remains notional
