Meeting: 21/09/2021 - Integrated Commissioning Board (Item 19)

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

Minutes:

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.

 

Alternatives considered:

None reported.

 

Resolved:

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.
