Delivering personalised health and care services that work for everyone

Working with you to make care budgets efficient…

Understanding personal budgets

We know – because funders and commissioners have told us – that direct payments to people who need support might seem to offer the choice they need, but can lead to significant difficulties. We’ve seen families unable to manage large budgets and struggle to maintain consistent care. Families who have told us managing direct payments is like trying to run a full-time business. And when the money is being spent, who is auditing the delivery of care?

Managing personal budgets for you

All of the complex issues involved in personal budgets not only create significant workloads for funders to manage, but also impact on the long term outcomes for those who need support. Resulting – in the most serious of cases – in additional costs to health and social services. Alocura is here to take that pressure off your organisation.

What we offer

Alocura ensures high quality, continuous care, while also creating efficiencies for funders. Using our market-leading, state-of-the-art administrative system designed specifically for the delivery of personal budgets, we have a hugely successful track record working with individuals, their families, care companies and funding organisations to deliver complex and long-term care via third party managed budgets.

We help you meet your NHS targets…

We deliver personalised services, ensuring choice, control and quality outcomes. Our financial management of a budget, including payroll, statements and real-time audits – has so many benefits; everyone has an up to date balance, can forecast and track spend, and ensure that consistent high quality care can be paid for.

How we do it …

Ensuring clear outcomes

Using recognised methods such as Lancaster University and In Control’s Personal Outcomes Evaluation Tool, we can deliver you with clear outcomes resulting from the process.

Money management

We manage all monies by providing funders with a secure client account and ensuring that payments are made to the correct care providers at the correct price at the correct time.

Plan management

We ensure that all funds spent correlate with an individual’s care and support plan. This includes managing any variations to the plan – you can guarantee that any spend outside of this is authorised.

Plan and budget creation

We put together a comprehensive budget for an individual’s care and support plan, for authorisation by your organisation.

What our customers say…

“By re-connecting individuals with their communities and matching them with PAs, they were able to develop their self-esteem and confidence, and become independent in self-managing their health conditions, significantly reducing the amount of time spent in hospital.”

Julia Rushton, CHC Clinical Lead Nurse NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU

“Without her personal budget being managed in this way, Natalie would have ended up in residential care, I have no doubts about that.”

Tracey Tolley, Registered Manager, My Life Support.
