19/00062 - Local Account for Adult Social Care (April 2018 - March 2019)

Background

 

Previously, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) used to assess how well Local Authorities were performing in Adult Social Care.  They no longer do this, and as part of national changes, all Local Authorities are now asked to produce a document, in partnership with their residents to enable them, to hold the authority to account.  As a result, the Local Account for Adult Social Care has been produced.

Consultees

The proposed decision will be considered at the Adult Social Care Cabinet Committee on 27 September 2019.

Financial implications: The proposed development of the Local Account does not include savings targets, however a key objective when developing the brochure and our user engagement approach has been the consideration of how to enhance value for money from a KCC perspective utilising wherever possible existing forums or approaches already in place across the Directorate or working in conjunction with existing partners to minimise costs. There will be a cost implication to the production and distribution of the Local Account; however these will be managed within the budget planning forecasts for the Unit, i.e. ongoing production of the Local Account.

Legal implications: None

Equalities implications: None
