Business continuity

Last Updated 15:09pm, 9 July 2020


If you have any specific issues or questions that you would like to raise with us please do so as follows:

Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

The MHRA publishes a range of guidance on issues relevant to social care providers. You can subscribe to their mailouts to receive updates.

Your business continuity plans

All providers should have developed their own coronavirus business continuity plans.

We would also encourage you to share good examples of your plans with one another on the Care Managers Facebook Page, Outstanding Managers Facebook Page or the PEN LinkedIn group.

Many providers are already doing so, together with other examples of policies that people can use to guide their development.

Prioritisation of personal care clients

Personal care providers are being asked to complete a prioritisation matrix for their clients including self-funders. This information will be collated centrally and put on a mapping tool which will enable the County Council to look at the priority of need in a certain area as well as being able to look at which individuals don’t have contingency arrangements in place.

Business continuity at Devon County Council - paying providers

Devon County Council departments have business continuity plans prepared.

Staff who handle payments are organised in a range of teams which are based at a number of different locations around the county. If required, staff skills are transferrable to support Accounts Payable operations.
