Approval to act as Lead Authority for the Community Discharge Grant to the Local Authorities in the North East London Transforming Care Partnership under s31 of the Local Government Act 2003 for financial years 2020/21 to 2022/23 (inclusive) on receipt of grant from Department of Health and Social Care.

Decision type: Key

Reason Key: Affects more than 1 ward;

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 30/10/2020

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
This is an urgent decision as partner local authorities require grant funding transfers to be arranged as soon as possible in order to establish community
packages for discharged patients for which this grant applies. This grant is in relation to facilitating prompt discharges from hospital for patients with learning
disabilities and autism for patients that have already been identified (12 in total across the partnership) and these placements need to be agreed and funded
urgently. As the Lead Authority, DHSC has already transferred the grant to LBH to ensure prompt discharges, and onward transfer of the grant to partner Local
Authorities is now urgent. The decision is proceeding by way of General Exception and will be subject to Call-in.

Decision due: Not before 19th Nov 2020 by Director of Adult Social Care and Health

Lead member: Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Care Services

Lead director: Director, Adult Social Care & Health


Consultation with Directors of Adult Social Services and Commissioning Leads in participating Local Authorities in North East London via signing of MOU and quarterly grant release form.
