Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Adult Social Services & Public Health
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The subject of the proposed decision is referred to in the FSC Strategic Commissioning Business Plan The decision is needed to enable the targeted provision of extra care housing as a replacement to residential care, for some, in the district. It also meets the aim of FSC being a commissioning authority as set out in Bold Steps for Kent. It directly supports 3 of the Bold Steps for Kent:
· Support the transformation of health and social care in Kent.
· Support new housing growth that is affordable, sustainable and with the appropriate infrastructure.
· Improve services for the most vulnerable people in Kent.
Financial Implications: There are no direct financial implications to the nomination agreement, however exercising nomination rights will make sure that the accommodation with care is targeted to the most appropriate clients that will benefit from the care service commissioned.
Legal Implications: In order for Legal and Democratic Services to finalise the nominations agreement and associated legal documentation, the Cabinet Member decision is required.
Equality Implications: None
As Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health, I delegate authority to the Director of Older People and Physical Disability to sign the nominations agreement to this extra care scheme, subject to her being satisfied as to the detailed terms and conditions.
