Joint Commissioning: The Sheffield Response To The NHS Long Term Plan

Decision Maker: Co-operative Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes


Cabinet will be asked to note the ongoing work of the Joint Commissioning Committee and the work underway to align service change, investment, contracting processes and collective commissioning intentions with financial planning.




The Director of Public Health submitted a report setting out Sheffield City Council’s (SCC) support to the ongoing development of arrangements for implementing the priorities in the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP). It described several key principles that Cabinet were asked to endorse, then explained how, through the various joint arrangements already in place, Sheffield is responding to the challenges set out in that Plan. It identified a number of areas where the LTP’s aspirations are considered to be too weak, set out the Council’s response to those areas, and described SCC’s aspirations for how the health and care system should work at neighbourhood, city and ‘Integrated Care System’ (ICS) geographies.

endorses the direction of travel set out in the next steps section of the report; and
