The Board received an update on progress and the impact of implementation on Phase 1 of the Care Act and was informed of the postponement and consequences of Phase 2 of the Care Act to 2020.


It was noted that on 1 April 2015 the Care Act came into force and Halton now had certain duties placed upon them (discussed in paragraph 3.1 of the report).  It was reported that progress had been made on the implementation of this and all aspects of the Care Act and that Halton could now demonstrate full compliance with all areas (detailed in paragraph 3.2).


Members discussed the expected impact of Phase 1 in Halton and the postponement of Phase 2 until April 2020, as decided by the Department of Health (DH).


RESOLVED:  That the Board notes the contents of the report and the impact and risks associated with the implementation of the Care Act 2015.
