Better Care Fund 2017/18 Quarter 3 Performance pdf icon PDF 375 KB

Minutes:

Ciara Stuart, Assistant Director for Out of Hospital Care Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group, introduced the report setting out performance in relation to the Better Care Fund performance metrics for Quarter 3 2017/18.  She highlighted the following information:

 

(a)  Performance is on track in relation to residential admissions and reablement metrics.

 

(b)  The full quarter’s data on delayed transfers of care was not available for reporting but it was anticipated that the target would not be met.  This will not be a surprise because it was expected that improvements would not be achieved until December but does mean that it is unlikely that the target for the year will be met.  Challenges relate to home care capacity and community beds waits, including loss of capacity from Connect House.  Plans to address these challenges are being put into place but flow has been disrupted.

 

(c)  Progress against the Plan for Quarter 3 was positive, with implementation of Discharge to Assess, the Out of Hospital Community Services procurement and work looking at population health.

 

RESOLVED to

 

(1)  note the performance in relation to the Better Care Fund performance metrics for Quarter 3 2017/18; and

 

(2)  note the quarterly return which was submitted to NHS England on 15 January 2018 and was authorised virtually by the Health and Wellbeing Board Chair.

Extension to Mental Health Support and Accommodation Based Contract - Stephanie Lodge pdf icon PDF 302 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Rasool Gore, Lead Commissioning Manager Nottingham City Council, introduced the report setting out a proposal to extend the contract for Stephanie Lodge, which provides a service to vulnerable adults who are experiencing a severe episode of mental illness.  She highlighted the following information:

 

(a)  It is proposed to extend the current contract to allow time for wider work to deliver the Better Lives, Better Outcomes Programme to take place.  Once this work has concluded procurement may be required and therefore it is not proposed to go out to tender for the service at this time.

 

(b)  The current service provided at Stephanie Lodge is very successful in dealing with a challenging cohort.  Most individuals only then require low level support and some are living completely independently.

 

(c)  The current contract is very good value for money compared to other services available.

 

(d)  As required by the Council’s Financial Regulations, the Chief Finance Officer supports the proposal to dispense with Contract Procedure Rule 5.1.2 and award the contract directly to Nottingham Community Housing Association.

 

The Sub-Committee requested that, following the meeting, Rasool Gore provide members with information about the number of people receiving treatment at Stephanie Lodge.

 

RESOLVED to:

 

(1)  approve extension of the Stephanie Lodge contract from 1 October 2017 – 31 March 2019 at a cost of £340,500; and

 

(2)  grant dispensation from Contract Procedure Rule 5.1.2, in accordance with Financial Regulation 3.29 and award the contract directly to Nottingham Community Housing Association.
