Chief Executive's Comment on Local Health & Care Structures in the County - March 2016

Another brief update from me on the direction of local Health and Care structures in the county. It’s been a worrying few weeks with high profile resignations from both Chief Executives at Burton Hospitals Trust and University Hospital North Midlands (Stoke & Stafford that is), plus some less public but equally critical staff moving on from other roles. This led me to pose a question at the recent ‘Local Voices’ event held by the CCGs in the south of the county – ‘Is the future of the local NHS still in local hands?’.

Announcement Re: Anti-lobbying Clause in Grant Agreements with Charities

The Cabinet Office has revealed that councils will not be required to include an anti-lobbying clause in grant agreements with charities if they have generated the money for the grants themselves. It is likely however that the government will recommend it as best practice.

Recent discussions have been conducted between Cabinet Office officials and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations following concerns raised by some charities about the anti-lobbying clause due to come into effect from 1 May 2016 as part of the new and renewed grant agreements.
