All Age Disability and Mental Health Service Delivery Service Review
The Head of Integrated Servicespresented the report of the Director of Care and Health which described the formal contractual arrangements entered into with the Wirral Community Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust in 2018 for the delivery of the delegated functions. These delegated functions were from the Councils statutory duty to assess the needs of adults and carers, as defined by the Care Act 2014. The duties included a range of functions including assessment, support planning, safeguarding, mental health assessment and professional case management. The statutory adult social care services were provided by the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP).
Councillor Gail Jenkinson proposed an amendment replacing the existing recommendations to avoid the issue coming back to the Committee before all the information required to make the decision was forthcoming.
This was seconded by Councillor Brenda Hall.
The amendment was voted on and carried (8:3)
This was then voted on as the substantive motion and carried (8:3)
A decision on the All Age Disability and Mental Health Delivery Review be deferred until we have more information, namely:
· The dependencies on which the decision must be based;
· The dates of these dependencies;
· The confirmation that resources will be in place to act on the information forthcoming; and
· The length of time taken to analyse the information.
Therefore the date by which the contract must be extended to can be determined.
