Who oversees the delivery of the Better Care Plan?
The Wiltshire Health and Wellbeing Board is overseeing the delivery of Better Care and is taking an active interest in its development. Health providers are all represented on the Health and Wellbeing Board.
Elements of the plan that require key decisions are, as required, being reported to the CCG Governing Body and to the Wiltshire Council Cabinet.
We have a Joint Commissioning Board for adult services and many of the emerging service changes are being developed and overseen by this board.
We have a number of existing joint arrangements between the council and the Wiltshire CCG, including pooled budgets for carers’ services. These agreements sit within a single overarching Joint Business Agreement which is overseen by the Joint Commissioning Board. This agreement has been expanded to cover the Better Care Fund pooled budget.
We have developed a joint integration programme team, led by a jointly-appointed Director of Integration and this includes specialist capacity from both Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire CCG.
There are bi-monthly update reports on the delivery of Better Care and the use of the pooled funds to our Joint Commissioning Board. The Joint Commissioning Board has developed a dashboard of performance outcomes which it monitors at every meeting. This dashboard has been expanded to include the key performance outcomes for the Better Care Fund.
