The Area Manager introduced a report giving an updated financial position for all Dearne Area Council expenditure during 2017/18 and the anticipated position for 2018/19 on the basis of current plans. It was noted that this position did not take account of any income that might be forthcoming from fixed penalty notices.
Progress was being made in developing the 2018/19 commissioning intentions in advance of the meeting scheduled for 11th June. It was hoped that funding could be secured for a research project into reasons for residents not attending GP and hospital appointments, which might form the basis of a university student research project in the event that the funding bid was unsuccessful.
RESOLVED that the report be noted.
