Section 75 2019-20 Year End Position Report pdf icon PDF 313 KB

Additional documents:


The Commissioning Partnership Board gave consideration to the Oldham Care Section 75 pooled fund year-end position for 2019/20.


The report showed expenditure of £163.970m compared to a budget of £157.941m which resulted in an adverse variance of £6.029m.  Most of the variance related to Oldham Council services, of which a significant amount was offset by favourable variances outside the S75 budget areas.


The Section 75 (S.75) agreements existed between Local Authorities and the NHS nationally for the pooling of budgets to facilitate closer working.  Oldham Council and Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) had entered into such an agreement to facilitate a whole system approach for the delivery of care to the citizens of Oldham.  The agreement for 2019/20, broadened in scope and increased in value.  It was enhanced by the Council’s £5.9m increased contribution to the wider healthcare economy.  The final 2019/20 S75 Agreement and pooled fund had been considered and approved under emergency arrangements.  The Board were reminded that S75 monitoring reports had been presented at Months 6, 8 and 9 during the 2019/20 financial year.


The final budget and actual expenditure were presented in the report. 


The Council reported an adverse variance against the pooled budget of £5.99m compared with £5.35m at month 9.  The increase was as a result of backdated care package payment not previously recorded.  A significant amount of the adverse variance was offset by favourable variances from income generation and salaries cost.  The whole of the Community Health and Adults Social Care Services portfolio had an overspend of £2.21m at the end of the 2019/20 financial year.  The major contributing factors were pressures within community care placements, linked to people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, sensory and memory and cognitive need. 


The CCG reported a net pooled overspend of £0.04m compared with £0.51m at Month 9.  This was principally in respect of increase usage of mental health inpatient beds.  In addition there were variances within the category of health care placement, which collectively had a small net overspend.
