Better Care Fund Plan Update


To receive an update on the Better Care Fund.



The Board considered a report that provided an update on the Better Care Fund Plan which had received full approval by NHS England on 19 December 2014.  The full value of the Better Care Fund in Central Bedfordshire was £18.707m. 


A Section 75 agreement was being produced in line with national guidance.  This would set out the terms for the Council and the Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (BCCG) to establish and maintain pooled funds.   The Interim Accountable Officer confirmed the BCCG’s commitment to working with the Council to improve health and social care in Central Bedfordshire, in line with the Plan.
