In line with the national Transforming Care Agenda Lancashire County Council (LCC) has been working closely in partnership with the Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Blackpool, and Blackburn with Darwen local authorities, to consider the provision required for people with learning disabilities and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges, including those with a mental health condition and require a placement in the community following an in-patient stay or to prevent an in-patient admission. Due to the estimated discharges in the next 12 months within the Pan-Lancashire area, a Flexible Agreement has been developed. This is intended to be an interim agreement and will initially be in place for one year with the option to extend for up to a further three years if required. This is to allow the time to develop further commissioning options for Transforming Care whilst allowing us to have an initial agreement in operation as early as September 2016, to allow Transforming Care placements to be commissioned with suitably selected providers via this Flexible Agreement. Social value has been considered throughout the development of the service specification and is part of the evaluation methodology.
