Care home fee levels

The interim standard and quality premium fee levels we will pay to care homes throughout Derbyshire. A consultation is currently taking place about a further fee increase.


Some homes may decide to charge a higher rate, in which case the difference would need to be met by an agreed third party contribution, normally paid by a family member or carer.
