Minutes:

Councillor R Moher (Lead Member, Adults and Health) introduced the report from the Director of Adult Social Services which set out the background to the publication of an annual council ‘Local Account’, the new means of demonstrating performance and drive improvement. The ‘Promoting Excellence in Councils’ Adult Social Care Programme Board was set up in 2010 with representatives from key stakeholders across the sector and recommended the report should be short, accessible and produced by December each year. Councillor Moher referred to the increasing recognition of the critical importance of health and wellbeing and drew attention to the financial implications set out in the report. The Local Account would also provide a mechanism by which self-regulation and improvement activities could be systematically monitored and reported. Councillor Moher asked members to note the information and consider the risks.

 

RESOLVED:-

 

(i)         that the performance and contextual information contained in the report from the Director of Adult Social Services be noted;

 

(ii)        that the current and future strategic risks associated with the information provided be noted.
