Minutes:

Bobby Lowen, Commissioning Lead at Nottingham City Council, and Naomi Robison, Senior Joint Commissioning Manager at the Greater Nottingham Clinical Commissioning Partnership, presented a report on the Better Care Fund (BCF) Quarter 3 Reporting Template 2019/20. The following points were discussed:

 

(a)  the report template confirms the continued compliance against the requirements of the BCF and provides information about the challenges, achievements and support needs in progressing the delivery. It includes a narrative on performance against the four national BCF metrics of non-elective admissions, admissions to residential and care homes, the effectiveness of reablement, and delayed transfers of care. The data is collated from the returns from all of the BCF partners. The Quarter 3 report was submitted to NHS England on Friday 24 January 2020, following sign-off by Councillor Eunice Campbell-Clark, Councillor Adele Williams and Dr Hugh Porter;

 

(b)  overall, performance in Quarter 3 was positive. There is room for improvement in relation to delayed transfers of care, and it is important to set stretch targets for performance against the metrics. Close monitoring is in place to ensure that partners and providers achieve their established objectives.

 

Resolved to:

 

(1)  approve the Better Care Fund Quarter 3 Reporting Template 2019/20;

 

(2)  delegate the authorisation of the Better Care Fund quarterly returns to NHS England to:

 

  (i)  the Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder with responsibility for health;

 

  (ii)  the Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder with responsibility for adult social care; and

 

 (iii)  the Chair of the NHS Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group;

 

on an ongoing basis.

 

·  Reasons for the decision

 

To confirm continued compliance against the requirements of the BCF and establish the challenges, achievements and support needs in progressing delivery. This will inform the BCF Plan, which will build on the achievements to date to ensure joint prioritisation of resources, avoidance of duplication, flexibility across organisational boundaries and targeting investment to meet shared priorities by taking a whole-system perspective.

 

·  Other options considered

 

To do nothing: This option is rejected because it is a national requirement for the Local Authority and Clinical Commissioning Group to review the BCF quarterly reporting templates and make a signed-off return to NHS England.
