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.

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.
