Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I Councillor Gina Reynolds, Lead Member for Adult Services, Health & Wellbeing and co-chair of the ICJC, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution do hereby:

a) in relation to extension of staff contracts

Approve:

£0.3m non recurrent spend to extend some temporary ASC staff contracts until the end of the year. 

The Reasons are:

To ensure improvement against iBCF measures, most notably to clear the long waiting times for assessments

Options considered and rejected were:

Not extending staff contracts. The option was rejected because of the risk to service objectives.

Assessment of Risk:

Low. Contract extensions are within the terms and conditions of the iBCF grant and will mitigate the risk of failing to meet iBCF targets.

The source of funding is:

iBCF supplementary grant within the pooled budget.

Legal Advice obtained:

Not applicable.

Financial Advice obtained:

The cost will be borne by existing budgets within the adults’ pooled budget. There will be no additional direct impact on council finances.

Procurement Advice obtained:

Not applicable.

 

b) in relation to extension of inpatient detoxification contract

Approve:

Extension of the Smithfield inpatient detoxification contract with Turning Point for 12 months, with a view to exploring the possibility of including this service within the overarching contract with GMMH from 2020. The annual financial value of the contract is £132k.

The Reasons are:

To secure continuity of service until the contract can be reviewed.

Options considered and rejected were:

Not extending the contract. The option was rejected because:

·       The service is necessary as part of the detoxification pathway

·       There are limited alternative providers in GM.

Assessment of Risk:

Low. Contract extensions are within the terms and conditions of the iBCF grant and will mitigate the risk of failing to meet iBCF targets.

The source of funding is:

Pooled budget.

Legal Advice obtained:

Not applicable.

Financial Advice obtained:

The cost will be borne by existing budgets within the adults’ pooled budget. There will be no additional direct impact on council finances.
