Adult Social Care Fee Rates 2022/23: Pre-consultation Report
To consider the report of the Cabinet Member for Adults and Social Care / Director of Commissioning
The Integrated Commissioning Board (ICB) considered a report of the Director of Strategic Commissioning/DASS which sought to approve consultation with the Adult Social Care (ASC) provider organisations as part of the fee rates setting process for 2022/2023. The report provides information on the implementation of the Real Living Wage (RLW) initiative that was agreed by the ICB in January 2021 and detailed at Appendix 1 of the report. The ICB was asked to note that subject to approval to consult, an outcomes report with recommendations for 2022/2023 provider fees will be prepared for an ICB meeting early in 2022.
That the Integrated Commissioning Board approves the consultation exercise, to be undertaken by the Director of Strategic Commissioning/DASS, with the Adult Social Care provider organisations as part of the fee rates setting process for 2022/2023.
Reasons for the resolution:
It was reported that early consultation would enable the issues that are important to care providers to be factored into the budget setting process.
