Joint report of the Head of Adult Commissioning and Health, NEW Devon CCG and South Devon and Torbay CCG on the BCF, Quarter Return, Performance Report and Performance Summary on the BCF, Quarter Return, Performance Report and Performance Summary, attached.
The Board considered the Report of the Head of Adult Commissioning and Health on the Better Care Fund (BCF), Quarter 4 Return, Performance Report and Performance Summary. The Report informed Members that the BCF was on track to meet two of the four metrics which included the rate of permanent admissions to residential care per 100,000 and the proportion of older people still at home 91 days after discharge from hospital into reablement/rehabilitation services. However, targets had not been met for non-elective admissions and delayed transfers of care.
Daily monitoring of delays had been established to identify prevailing issues, alongside an implementation of the system wide plan to tackle delayed transfers of care, which was overseen by the A&E Delivery Boards.
Members discussion points included:
· the democratic accountability and governance of the BCF to the Health and Wellbeing Board; and
· the Public Health report on the Acuity Audit to be bought to a future meeting of the Board.
RESOLVED that the Report on the Better Care Fund Q4 be noted.
