Budget Monitoring Month 4
The Director of Care and Health introduced the report which set out the financial monitoring information for the Adult Social Care and Public Health Committee and provided an overview of budget performance for the area of activity. It was outlined that there was a forecast favourable position of £619k, which it was felt showed that the stewardship of the committee and the focus of the budget performance had been strong. The Committee was advised that work was ongoing with Cheshire and Wirral Partnership to develop more effective ways of supporting people with complex disabilities, as well as the ongoing context of Covid-19 and the expected winter pressures, where the NHS was supporting with discharges which protected social care costs somewhat.
Further detail was provided to members on the change initiatives, where a selected number of social workers were working to develop new processes for when people request care support, the review of which was due to be undertaken and the data would be evaluated to review the effectiveness and enable consideration about its further rolling out, information of which would be shared with members.
