Report of the Director of Social Services, Health and Housing
1. That the Director of Social Services, Health and Housing be granted delegated authority to agree the final terms of the Section 33 agreement for care homes in the West Glamorgan region.
2. That the Director of Social Services, Health and Housing enter into the Section 33 agreement with the West Glamorgan partners of City and County of Swansea and Swansea Bay University Health Board.
Reason for Decisions:
To enable the Council to enter into a Section 33 agreement with Western Bay partners which would be the most appropriate way for the Council to discharge its obligations under Part 9 of the Act.
The Council’s obligations under Part 9 of the Act came into force on 6 April 2018. Although the timescales for implementation was extended. Local Authorities were informed that Welsh Government may consider intervention if the pooled fund requirements were not delivered by the end of April 2019. Delegating authority to the Director of Social Services, Health and Housing to approve the final terms of the Section 33 agreement will avoid the need for further delay in establishing the Section 33 agreement.
Implementation of Decisions:
The decision will be implemented after the 3 day call in period.
