Cabinet considered a report of the Chief Executive setting out an update to the Transformation to 2019 (T19) work programme.
The report was introduced and it was confirmed that £107 million of savings had been secured, whilst strong initial progress had also been made on the Transformation to 2021 (T21) programme which was now running concurrently. Cabinet noted that future reports would focus on progress within T21, with updates on the conclusion of T19.
The progress on a number of specific areas of both T19 and T21 programmes were highlighted and discussed, including the consultation on the future operation of Orchard Close, our shared services work with the three London Boroughs, looked after children and the forthcoming consultation on the Library service. Cabinet acknowledged the significant extent of Transformation progress over the last decade and noted in particular, the differences in Government funding support levels between Local Authorities and the NHS for this period.
The recommendations in the report were agreed. A decision record is attached to these minutes.
