2018/19 Pooled Budget: Budget Monitoring - Q3 Forecast pdf icon PDF 135 KB

To consider a joint report of Stockport Council Financial Services, Stockport CCG Finance.

Additional documents:


The Borough Treasurer submitted a joint report (copies of which had been circulated) on the financial performance as at Quarter 3 of the 2018/19 Section 75 Pooled Budget, including commentary in respect of significant variances.


Specific reference was made to pressures on community / out of hospital services; acute spending, including elective and non-elective activity at local acute providers.


Clarification was provided that deficits on budgets would be met from the organisation responsible for the commissioning of the services involved.


There was discussion about the significant cost pressure arising from residents accessing services not directly within the control of the Council or CCG, where there was less connection to the integrated service model being developed in Stockport. It was commented that while efforts could be made to influence behaviours of patients in the Stockport system, this was less so the case in other providers that residents may choose to access given their geographical convenience.


There was discussion in relation to the range of activity being undertaken by partners to reduce demand on services, in particular in relation to supporting independent living, improving the primary care offer and ensuring a good quality care offer from private providers.


RESOLVED – (1) That in relation to the Q3 2018/19 Pooled Budget report:-


(i)            the movements a detailed in the report be approved;

(ii)              the forecast outturn position of a £3.570m deficit be noted.


Date of Next Meeting

To approve the date of the next meeting.

RESOLVED – That the Secretary be requested to make arrangements for a further meeting.
