Financial Plans and Budgets 2012-13 AW gave a brief overview of the budgets. The budgets will be taken to Cluster Board on 27 March for sign off, which is before the next CCE meeting. The purpose of today’s meeting is to allow CCE members to have sight of the budgets as they stand. AW explained the split between the budgets for NKHA/GHCCG/ other areas. The budget setting process was discussed and AW explained the breakdown. The SCG budget will be going to NHS Commissioning Board. The contingency pot was discussed and it was noted that some discussion should take place with respect to when/if the contingency pot should be used. Contingency could only be committed on a nonrecurrent basis. There are criteria for what the money should be used for. It was noted that it would be useful to have a list of business cases/LES’s available now for the whole year. AW confirmed that a detailed paper will be taken to the next Finance and Performance Committee to discuss contingency further. CM confirmed that a more detailed report will be presented to F&P before being taken to the Cluster Board for final sign off on 27 March. Further detailed reports will then be brought back to the next CCE on March 28th for discusson. The CCE members NOTED the contents of the report and thanked AW for her attendance.
