Brighton & Hove City Council

Social Care & NHS Integration Contract Agreement

Mr Neil Roberts, Head of Information Systems

“In order to meet a very demanding Social Care and NHS systems integration requirement for adult services, it was clear that with constraints upon resource and time, Brighton and Hove needed to enter into a partnership agreement with its systems supplier. A potential minefield. Best Practice Group PLC worked with the city council very closely to understand the possible contractual risks and implications of such an agreement. Their subject matter expertise, diligence and immediate understanding of the pitfalls we could face was so reassuring. The pioneering agreement that followed ensured that the authority was fully protected by the contractual terms and conditions, and future-proofed the ensuing work on the burgeoning children’s services agenda.”
