Leading care provider H1 Healthcare has launched a brand new information service aimed at helping people get the most out of Direct Payments.
Self-Directed Support made via Direct Payments or Personal Budgets can be made by local authorities to people receiving social care services in order that they may direct their own care and support, meaning that individuals can arrange packages tailored to their own needs.
In a bid to bring information about the various options available together in one place, Aberdeen-based H1 Healthcare has created Easydirectpayments.com a portal designed to offer advice and guidance on all aspects of Direct Payments, from employing a carer or care provider to financial and legal advice. H1 Healthcare have collaborated with Lili Hunter Consulting and Morisons Solicitors to help provide Employment and Legal advice and services.
H1 Healthcare is headquartered in Aberdeen and also operates from offices in Glasgow and Inverness. It is a leading provider of recruitment, training and healthcare services throughout the UK and was founded by nurse and former care home owner Pamela Easen in 2002.
Commenting on the launch of Easydirectpayments.com, Pamela Easen said: “There is a lot of information out there about Direct Payments and we receive queries on a daily basis, so it was logical to create this portal which brings everything together in one place making it easy and straight-forward to access.
“There has been much talk recently about the home care review in England by the Equality and Human Rights Commissions which has recommended a complete overhaul of the system and Direct Payments – which apply in Scotland as well as England – will play a crucial part in this so it is vital that people have the opportunity to have the information they need at their fingertips.”
