This document provides guidance to partners for local Better Care Fund plans – Clinical Commissioning Groups, Local Authorities, and Health and Wellbeing Boards – on the operational requirements for these plans in 2016-17.


This guidance has been co-developed by the national organisations which make up the Better Care Support Team with input from Local Authorities (LAs) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). It replaces the BCF Operationalisation Guidance for 2015-163 previously published by those organisations in March 2015.
