Better Care Fund – a reminder of the key elements
• The Government has created a £3.8b pooled budget for
2015/16, intended to help move care out of hospital and into
the community and improve working and integration between
Health and Social Care.
• For North Yorkshire, this equates to £39.8m: this is not new
• The 2015/16 fund includes the Disabled Facilities Grant
funding with the stipulation that it passes directly to Districts.
• Approximately £10m of the local funding will be performance
related based on delivery of local reduction in emergency
Vision for North Yorkshire
Care centred on the needs of the individual and their carers,
empowering people to take control of their health and independence.
We are committed to:
• Become an exemplar for how CCGs and Local Government can
work together to lead a complex health and social care system.
• Improve self –help and independence
• Invest in Primary and Community Services
• Create a sustainable local system which protects Adult Social
Care and partners with hopsitals to reduce reliance on acute
services and residential care.
