This matter was discussed at the Adult Social Care Cabinet Committee on 28 September 2018. The proposed decision will be discussed at the Adult Social Care Cabinet Committee on 12 March 2019.
Financial implications: None.
Legal implications: The legal framework underpinning arrangements between KCC and KMPT for the delivery of mental health and social care services in Kent will change. The existing S75 Agreement between KCC and KMPT and all subsequent addendum letters relating to the S75 Agreement will be terminated. KCC and KMPT will therefore no longer operate under the legal framework of a S75 Agreement. A new alliance agreement will be entered into by KCC and KMPT to provide a legally binding framework for the new partnership arrangements.
Equalities implications: None.
