This page lists the meetings for Joint Commissioning Board.
Commissioning Board oversees a partnership between the Council and
the health bodies which is responsible for commissioning, providing
and overseeing a number of adult health and social care services.
The partnership is governed by an Agreement between the Council and
Brighton & Hove Primary Care Trust under Section 75 of the
National Health Service Act 2006 (‘the Section 75
Agreement’), covering the delegation of functions and pooling
of budgets for services.
Commissioning Board is the top decision making body for the
partnership, with delegated powers to make decisions concerning the
commissioning and provision of services on behalf of the parties to
the Section 75 Agreement. It is also the senior forum for the
discussion of policy and strategy across the partnership as a
whole, and is thus responsible for setting the strategic direction
for these services.
All the decision-making powers of the Council
in relation to the Section 75 Agreement will be exercised by the
Adult Care & Health Committee.
