Health Minister, Dr Daniel Poulter MP, yesterday addressed an audience of Council Leaders and CEOs about the new Care Act and its implications for Local Government and the NHS. He explained the background to the £ 3.8 billion better care fund to support joint working and delivery of the acts requirements.
Ronald Duncan, Chairman of cloudBuy, introduced the session by announcing cloudBuy and NHS Shared Business Services are ready to deliver personal budgets to the 211 Clinical Commissioning Groups within England, building on the ground-breaking work that cloudBuy has already carried out for Local Government. This means the technology industry is already ready to support the new CEO of the NHS Simon Steven's drive to move millions of people to personal budgets by 2018, which he announced yesterday at the LGA.
Cllr Colette Wyatt-Lowe Hertfordshire County Council cabinet member for Care and chair of the Health and Wellbeing board explained how Hertfordshire as one of the lead authorities had already agreed to work up its pooled funding with its local clinical commissioning groups to £ 500m per annum, along with the pioneering work that Hertfordshire carried out in bringing care to the self-funders within the county.
Cllr Robin Brown Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) cabinet member for Care and chair of the Health and Wellbeing board informed the audience about an innovative new solution for self-funders that makes the implementation of the Care Act self-funding whilst delivering the new legal requirements for self-funders. He also outlined how NCC is working with cloudBuy and Grass Roots to deliver an easy to use system for self-funders that aims to be rolled out nationally.
"The Care Act is a revolutionary piece of legislation that can bring about real personalisation in how social care is delivered," said Ronald Duncan, Chairman and CIO, cloudBuy. "With the underlying technology in place the UK leads the world in addressing the complex challenges of an ageing population."
