AHWB.044.2019 - Use of Non Recurrent BCF Earmarked Reserve

Decision Maker: Director of People

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Place Plan is one of the major transformational change programmes that make up the Doncaster Growing Together portfolio. There is still significant support required to deliver the commitments set out within the Place Plan, Joint Commissioning Agreement and Provider Collaborative Agreement.


To agree to use the Non Recurrent Better Care Fund Earmarked Reserve allocated to the Place Plan.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - Programmes delivered through existing managerial capacity with no additional resource: these roles have a specific remit to operate across the partner organisations to develop Integrated Care Partnership new care model solutions. Existing managers do not have the capacity or detailed knowledge and insight into the delivery of these complex programmes. Additional capacity directly supports operational and commissioning managers to deliver their organisational and partnership commitments.
Option 2 - Cease programme delivery: both programmes are commitments within the Borough Strategy, Place Plan and legally-binding Joint Commissioning Agreement and Joint Commissioning Strategy.
