Request:

I would like to know the annual cost of the level 4 enhanced care provision on wards across the hospital. Ideally from the most recent available.

If is possible could you tell me the number of hours provided plus cost. Is that is not possible could you tell me the unit cost of covering 1 hours of enhanced care.

 

 

Response:

Unfortunately I do not have access to the total costing for the trust for the financial year  but will be able to provide you with the costing for  an hour’s 1.1 care:

 

·         Health care assistant hourly rate is Average £24 .00

·         The average numbers of Level 4 patients within the hospital  trust – 10 patients
