To report on the outturn position against the 2020/2021 Health & Social Care Pooled budget


Consideration was given to a report of the Cabinet Member for Adult Care and Wellbeing / Chief Finance Officer (Health and Social Care Integration) on the financial position of the pooled budget outturn position for the financial year 2020/21.


Alternatives considered

No alternatives were considered.



1.    That the break-even position being reported against the H&SC pooled budget for 2020/21 be noted.

2.    That in 2020/21 £8.5m of Covid costs were incurred against the Health & Social Care Pool Budget. £5.2m of these costs had been reclaimed from the NHS Covid fund, and £3.3m forms part of the Local Authority overall Covid-19 pressure. The pool Covid pressure of £3.3m has been wholly funded from Local Authority Government emergency funding leaving no in year pool pressure.


Reason for resolution

The Health and Social Care pooled budgets for 2020/21 are reported to the Board in line with National Health Service England guidelines and the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership requirements.
