Children’s social care out of hours emergency duty service
To approve the recommendations for provision of an out of hours emergency duty service for children’s social care from October 2019.
As a result of Worcestershire County Council transferring their children services to Worcestershire Children First on 1 October 2019, it is proposed that the current contract for the Herefordshire Emergency Duty Team (EDT) service with Worcestershire County Council is terminated and a new contract is awarded to Worcestershire Children First. This proposal will ensure continuity of this business critical service.
