S75 Health Act Partnership Mosaic (CYP 39)
To consider a report of the Executive Councillor (Children & Young People)
The report will set out a proposal for a Section 75 NHS Act 2006 Partnership Agreement which will facilitate integrated provision of drug and alcohol services to young people up to the age of 25. This will be achieved through the transfer of NHS PCT staff to Stockport Council and the delegation of the health function and integrated management for the MOSIAC service. The Service will remain jointly commissioned by NHS Stockport and the Council but as a result of the new S75 the Council will become the provider incorporating the health elements previously delivered by Community Health Stockport staff as part of the partnership.
