For the Committee to consider and comment on the Quarter 1 organisational performance and progress against the Integrated Delivery Plan.
Becky Hale, Chief Commissioning Officer (Health and Care),
Warwickshire County Council and South Warwickshire Foundation Trust (SWFT) introduced this item and gave a presentation to pull out key messages. It summarised the Council’s performance at the end of the first quarter (April-June 2022) against the strategic priorities and areas of focus set out in the Council Plan 2022-2027. This report drew out relevant areas within the Committee’s remit from that presented to Cabinet on 8th September. Sections of the report together with detailed supporting appendices focussed on:
The report provided a combined picture of the Council’s delivery, performance, and risk. The overall performance remained strong, despite the current external environment. There were eleven key business measures (KBMs) within the remit of the Committee. Of these, nine were reportable at quarter 1, with seven of the KBMs assessed as being on track and two were not on track.
The report detailed notable performance in the broad area of ‘support people to live healthy, happy and independent lives’ area of focus. It set out expected trajectories for performance, for areas deemed more volatile than usual, as a result of the reported external factors.
There were some actions identified as ‘at risk’. These related to capital programmes and projects, linked to current inflation levels and supply chain challenges. One of the Council’s strategic risks related to adult social care and health directly (widening of social, health, and economic inequalities post pandemic). Two others related to inflation and the cost of living. The economy might impact on service provision and service demand. At the service level, two risks had been higher than target for three consecutive quarters, those being the risk of care market failure and the risk of an ongoing impact on Public Health resources from responding to Covid-19.
