Following the initial submission of draft Better Care Fund (BCF) plans, a number of common issues arose that we wanted to address and/or clarify. We have updated a number of documents to help clarify these issues, including:
- Better Care Fund technical guidance (this document is no longer available here but can be found on the National Archives website)– we have improved clarity around metric specifications.
- Better Care Fund planning template part 2 (this document is no longer available here but can be found on the National Archives website) – it is now clearer exactly what figures are required e.g. total delay days. For the 4th April BCF plan submission this new template should be used in place of the original template.
- Statistical significance calculator – updated to address a minor issue although this will only have a small (and in many cases no) impact on the figures it provides.
We have also uploaded a spreadsheet (this document is no longer available here but can be found on the National Archives website)
which provides a breakdown by council of the £185m contained within the BCF to spend against the Care Bill reforms in 2015/16
