(Exemption paragraph 3)

 

(Note by Clerk: The Chairman agreed that this item be added to the agenda as an urgent item as the taking of the decision could not reasonably be deferred.  The Chairman of the Corporate Review Committee also agreed to the decision below being exempt from call-in as any delay likely to be caused by the call-in process would seriously prejudice the Council’s or the public’s interests or the interests of any persons to whom the decision relates.)

 

Reasons for the Decision – There is considerable concern nationally about the risk of care providers failing; this would have a catastrophic impact on people and the NHS.  In view of this, approval is sought to offer care providers a fee uplift for 2020/21 and additional non-recurrent financial sustainability funding to reflect the cost pressures from COVID-19.

 

Decision – That the recommendations contained in the report be agreed.
