BCF 2015-16 Underspend Proposals pdf icon PDF 296 KB


Antony Dixon, Strategic Commissioning Manager, presented the report of the Corporate Director for Children and Adults, updating the Sub-Committee on proposals for utilisation of the Better Care Fund (BCF) underspend. The six proposals will support the delivery of BCF metrics, further integration of Health and Social Care provision in the city and improve outcomes for vulnerable older citizens and those with long-term conditions.


As identified at the meeting of the Sub-Committee held on 13 October 2015, there is an underspend of the BCF polled budget against agreed funding, predominantly due to seven day service provision. These six proposals are all short-term measures which require funding in-year.


In answer to a question from the Committee, Antony explained that the third proposal (CPNs within Care Delivery Groups – Non recurrent pilot) is only for limited time-allocated activity, and a further report will be presented around other, longer-term initiatives for mental health services.
