Report of Head of Integrated Strategic Commissioning, Durham County Council and NHS County Durham Clinical Commissioning Group.
The Board received an update report of the Head of Integrated Strategic Commissioning on the County Durham Commissioning and Delivery Plan 2020-25, presented by the Director of Integrated Community Services (for copy see file of minutes).
The Director of Integrated Community Services noted the County Durham Commissioning and Delivery Plan was in its third edition and focused on ‘starting well’, ‘living well’ and ‘aging well’ and was administered by the County Durham Care Partnership Executive which consisted of the CCG, the NHS Trust, the Local Authority, the Mental Health Trust and other partners. He noted it had been delayed until autumn as a result of the pandemic and explained that the plan helped to shape commissioning decisions, understand where there was need, in respect of communities and individuals, and to use the collective resources and staff to meet that need. He added that it was a complicated document, however, it was very comprehensive, and picked up all of the health and social care sector.
That the content of the plan be approved.
