Collaboration Agreement for Integrated Services between East Sussex County Council and East Sussex Healthcare Trust (ESHT) for 0-5 Services pdf icon PDF 209 KB

Minutes:

7.1       The Lead Member for Children and Families considered a report by the Director of Children’s Services seeking approval to enter into a collaborative partnership with East Sussex Healthcare Trust (ESHT) for delivery of an integrated 0-5 year old service.

 

7.2       RESOLVED to 1) enter into a collaborative partnership with ESHT for delivery of an integrated 0-5 year old service with effect from 1 April 2018; and

                                    2) delegate authority to the Director of Children’s Services to approve the terms of such Collaboration Agreement, and to take any actions arising from the collaborative partnership.

 

Reasons

 

7.3       Considerable progress has been made to establish an integrated 0-5 year old service with significant improvement in data capture and in performance against key performance indicators. A move away from ESHT as the current provider would be likely to de-stabilise the service and thus have a negative impact on the progress achieved thus far.
