Salford City Council - Record of Decision
I, Councillor Gina Reynolds, Lead Member for Adult Services, Health & Wellbeing and co-chair of the Adults Commissioning Committee, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby approve the implementation of the policy not to fund additional fees related to hospitality charges not related to care requirements that will be applicable to all commissioned health and care services in Salford.
The Reasons are: This will mean a consistent policy across health and care in Salford with regards to additional hospitality fees not related to care requirements. It would also mitigate the risk of inconsistency in dealing with requests individually.
(1) Do nothing and deal with requests on a case by case basis.
(2) Salford commissioners to take further legal advice around this specific case and around overall principle going forward.
The following documents have been used to assist the decision process.
