·         Welcomed the update and noted the progress that had been made through effective partnership working.

·         It was noted that the work of the Section 75 Task & Finish Group was one aspect of building future relationships, however recognised that the legislation, support and relationships would evolve.

·         Welcomed the additional funding that was being provided through the Section 75 agreement and the progress that had been made.

·         Highlighted the likelihood that the pooled budget would decrease in value, however provided assurance that if the budget decreased it would be with a view to build back up.

·         That the maturity of the partnership relationships provide the foundation for meeting the future ambitions for the residents of the borough which were crucial moving forwards.

·         Welcomed the proposal to introduce a hybrid approach which would ensure the correct representation for decision making.

The following comments were made/issues raised:-

 

·      It was noted that the financial benefit outlined in the report in connection to vacancies was due to normal turn over and recruitment arrangements within the services and were not being held.

·      In relation to the vacancies, it was commented that there was a national shortage in terms of senior leadership in Safeguarding and welcomed that this position was not being held as a financial saving.

·      Noted that the overspend was a fraction of a percent in relation to the overall budget and commended the Finance and Strategic Team for their robust financial management and partnership working given the increased demand on health services as a result of COVID.

 

RESOLVED – (1) That the Q3 Budgets to be included within the scope of the s75 Agreement be approved.

 

(2) That the forecast outturn position of a £0.375 deficit be noted.
