Derbyshire County Council (DCC) and the five Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) in Derbyshire - Tameside and Glossop CCG, North Derbyshire CCG, Hardwick CCG, Erewash CCG, and Southern Derbyshire CCG have funding agreements with the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) for a wide range of services.
Most of these agreements pre-date the establishment of the Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) and CCGs and therefore do not necessarily reflect current and future priorities for supporting an individual's health and wellbeing.
In February 2014, the Derbyshire HWB agreed to commence a project to:
- Understand how much the public sector is investing in the VCS in relation to health and social care.
- Evaluate and prioritise investment based on a set of shared outcomes taking account of any budget constraints being faced by the partners.
- Identify opportunities for greater budget alignment and make recommendations for continued investment or disinvestment going forward.
- Develop a single commissioning process including contract monitoring and evaluation.
The HWB has tasked a project group with representation from Derbyshire County Council and all five Derbyshire CCGs to make recommendations to ensure future commissioning of the voluntary sector use the available resources and those within each local community to deliver effective, efficient and sustainable services that improve the health and wellbeing of people in Derbyshire.
