‘Improved quality and fairness’ for integrated night care – The Star


Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group have commented on a decision to scrap two night care services, combine resources and reduce the number of rounds.

The current services are separated by the Night Time Visiting Service, run by Sheffield City Council, and the Roaming Nights Care, operated by SCCG.

Both provide support during the night with pressure care, personal care and toileting, with two care workers travelling together to visit people across the city.

The plans would see both of these close and resources combined for a joint Care at Night service, run by both the council and SCCG.
Council officers said the change will save money and make the service more efficient.

Mandy Philbin, chief nurse at NHS SCCG, said: “NHS Sheffield CCG has been able to agree in principle to combine the night visiting services. We believe that by working with Sheffield City Council we can improve the quality and fairness of this service for these patients by using the Sheffield pound more wisely.
