Welcome from the Chair
The Chair welcomed members to the Meeting and introduced Shona McFarlane and Alison Murray as new members of the Board representing Care Users.
The Board heard that in consequence of the Aberdeen City Council Budget Decisions not being approved until Tuesday 3 March 2020, it had not been possible to circulate this Budget Agenda as prescribed by Standing Order 10(1) – Notice Of Meetings. Members were assured however that the circulation complied with the requirements of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973
The Board resolved : -
to suspend Standing Order 10(1) – Notice Of Meetings and allow presentation of all matters circulated under this Agenda.
There were no Declarations of Interest.
There was no Exempt Business.
The Board had before it the minute of its previous meeting on 11 February 2020.
The Board resolved :-
to approve the minute as a correct record.
The Board had before it a report presented by the Chief Finance Officer, ACHSCP which presented an update on the final levels of funding delegated by Aberdeen City Council and NHS Grampian for health and social care activities in 2020/21.
The report recommended : -
that the Board –
a) note the anticipated financial out-turn for 2019/20 and the impact on the
Reserves position of the IJB;
b) note the financial allocations proposed to be allocated by the partner
c) approve the 2020/21 budget and the Aberdeen City IJB Medium Term
Financial Framework included as appendix 1 of this report;
d) note that the IJB previously agreed to earmark £2.5 million in a risk fund
and it is not proposed to replenish this fund;
e) approve the Bon Accord Contract level for 2020/21 of £30,304,000 and
budget assumptions noted in sections 3.14 and 3.15;
f) instruct the Chief Officer to uplift the direct payments for clients with a
staffing element included in their payment by 3.33% from the 1 May 2020
to cover the increase in the Scottish Living Wage;
g) instruct the Chief Officer to negotiate uplifts for those Social Care
providers not covered by the National Care Home Contract; and
h) make the budget directions contained in appendix 2 of this report and
instruct the Chief Officer to issue these directions to the constituent authorities.
The Board heard that financial arrangements were aligned to the Board Vision and centred around five principal themes, each aligned to the Board Strategy and that financial pressures required absorption of the previously agreed Risk Fund within this year’s funding model.
The Board further heard that the financial pressures could not be underestimated and the increased demand indicated a driver for continued change, the efficiencies of which complimented the Financial Budget.
The Board resolved :-
to approve the recommendations.
