Health and Social Care Pooled Budget Monitoring Report- May 2020 pdf icon PDF 740 KB

To consider the attached report from the Chief Finance Officer (Health & Social Care Integration)

Minutes:

 

The Integrated Commissioning Board received a report of the CCG’s Chief Finance Officer which updated the meeting on the financial position of the pooled budget for the financial year 2020/2021 as at the end of May 2020. The pooled budget excluded the Better Care Fund which was being reported separately to the ICB in 2020/2021. The pooled budget had been amended to take into account the savings previously reported to the Board.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic had caused a change in funding arrangements for the CCG, and there was uncertainty around the impact Covid-19 would have on both partners this year. As a result of this uncertainty it was agreed at the Integrated Commissioning Board and Cabinet meetings both held 26th May that the Health and Social Care Pool budget risk share agreement be changed for 2020/2021 so that both partners could be responsible for their own pooled fund gap and in year underspend or overspend.

Approval to extend framework call off contracts for stairlifts, steplifts and vertical lifts

Minutes:

The Integrated Commissioning Board was advised that under the Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) a significant number of adaptations require the fitting of a stairlift, steplift or vertical lift had been undertaken.  All of these lifts had been purchased and installed, along with warranties through a call-off contract through the Manchester Framework, tendered and administered by Manchester City Council. 

 

Rochdale Council had signed up to call off this framework contract in June 2018, using the first placed Stannah for stairlifts and Pollock for vertical lifts and steplifts. The Council also call off the second placed stairlift provider Thyssen as they provided a unique narrow stairlift, which in some exceptional cases was required, as Stannah are unable to provide a stairlift to fit in space available.

 

The contracts signed in 2018 were for 2+2.  The initial two year period was coming to an end on 30th June 2020, therefore we would be seeking to extend for a further two years.  However, Manchester City Council had recently retendered their framework, but were not due to finalise the process and share the outcome until July 2020.  The advice from Star is to extend the existing contracts with three providers until 31st March 2021, whilst it was determined whether the new framework will be more advantageous to us than to extend for the additional two years

 

Resolved:

The Integrated Commissioning Board agrees to extend the existing framework call off contracts with Stannah Lift Services, Pollock Lift Services and Thyssen Krupp Encasa lift services from 1st July 2020 until 31st March 2021.
