Who are we?

We can source this care for people in the community who have increasing care needs, as well as those who require care support following admission to hospital (often referred to as Discharge to Assess)
Health & Social Care Organisations & Professionals
Whether you support people being discharged from hospital or those living at home you will meet people qualified to pay for their own care (self-funders) and individuals topping up Council direct payments. We enable and support people to find and arrange care services, and quickly navigate through an often complex and stressful process - we are an expert and highly efficient care broker.
We operate a range of cost-effective and highly competitive contract services with the NHS and Social Care, including Integrated Care Systems/Organisations, and actively align with and better enable Discharge to Assess (D2A) models and pathways. Our approach helps build additional community capacity, better enable timely flow and discharge and reduce hospital length of stay (LOS)
MyCare Selection's experienced, highly-trained and DBS checked Care Navigators support people to find an appropriate care provider quickly. Typically, we expect to find a care placement immediately or within 24-48 hours of receiving a referral. This can be either a CQC registered care home or a care agency, or via an introduction to a highly experienced and suitably qualified personal care assistant. We will support these service users up until we have found a suitable care provider and can then relay the outcome to you.
We understand the importance of finding a balance between selecting a choice of providers that offer high quality and good value care while satisfying the service user's needs, and also the need to act with pace to support and enable timely discharge.
