Adult Social Care Financial Update and Progress with Financial Recovery Plan

Decision status: Recommendations Approved



At the meeting of the Committee held on 15th June 2022 an analysis of the Adult Heath and Social Care budget, spend and funding was provided to enhance understanding, improve transparency and to ensure that ongoing financial risks and issues remain visible. At the same meeting, a Care Governance Strategy and Framework was approved setting out a robust approach to governance across Adult Health and Social Care, including effective use of our resources.




It was agreed that future reports would be brought to the Committee which set out more detail on funding streams, spends and on forecasting, including long term assumptions, as part of our approach to transparent reporting on the Adult Social Care Budget spend and progress in relation to the financial recovery plan.
