As part of ECC’s ongoing engagement with care providers, ECC are inviting providers to register their interest in the upcoming focus group meetings.

Focus Group Meeting: Cost of Care, Pricing, and Uplifts
Location: Central Baptist Church, Chelmsford
Date: 18th July 2024

Focus Group 1: 9:30 am to 11:30 am (Community Based Care, including Live at Home and Supported Living)
Focus Group 2: 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm (Accommodation Based Services, including Integrated Residential and Nursing and AWD Residential)

ECC and ECA will be hosting two in-person focus groups with representatives from the Essex care market to share its current approach and thinking and to seek input on:
- Cost of Care
- Contractual pricing models
- Approach to uplifts/inflation in 2025/2026

Due to limited availability, expressions of interest will be reviewed by ECA and ECC to ensure fair representation across the care provider market.

If you are not invited to attend the focus group, you will still be able to share your thoughts in advance with ECA, who can represent your interests, or access the shared presentation slides after the sessions to provide your input.
