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 and Social Care Integration which provided the Board with an update report on quarter 1 budget monitoring for the Better Care Fund for the financial year 2020/21.
Members were informed that there were contingencies being held for budgets not yet allocated in 2020/21 of £68k and a forecast underspend against the equipment store budget of £74k giving a total forecast revenue underspend of £142k.
It is a requirement of the Local Authority and National Health Service England to monitor budgets. This report updates the monitoring against the 2020/21 budget which is a requirement of the Section 75 agreement. Therefore no alternatives were considered.
That the report be noted.
Reason for resolution
To comply with budget monitoring requirements.
