To consider the attached report from the Chief Finance Officer (Health & Social Care Integration)
Consideration was given to a report of the Chief Finance Officer – Health & Social Care Integration which sought approval of the Integrated Health & Social Care Pooled Fund Section 75 Agreement for 2020/21.
Members were advised that the Section 75 agreement has been updated to reflect:-
· The 2020/21 partner contributions to the Health and Social Care Pooled Fund and Better Care Fund and details on how the Better Care Fund is intended to be spent.
· The updated risk share agreement for 2020/21.
· Revised Integrated Commissioning Board Terms of Reference.
Consideration was given to the option of having two Section 75 Agreements, one for each Pool. As the only differences between the pools simply relate to the risk share agreements and the levels of contributions made by the Partners, it was considered to be more effective to have a single Section 75 with different Schedules reflecting the varying risk share arrangements / contributions made by Partners.
That progress on the Integrated Health & Social Care Pooled Fund Section 75 Agreement for 2020/21, be noted
Reason for resolution
The Board had delegated preparation of the agreement to the Pooled Fund Manager / Chief Finance Officer for Health & Social Care Integration.
