DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The service roll out plan remains on track and implementation with wave 3 is working effectively. There is delivery assurrance and model fidelity via a contract with the Offender Health Collaborative. It remains on track to achieve its objective of service rollout to 100% of the English population by 2021. The Full Business Case outcome has confirmed 2 years additional funding with the remaining programme roll out subject to a RAND evaluation. Negotiations still need to be had regarding the timing and terms of reference, including benefits realisation, of the RAND evaluation articulated in the FBC decision from HMT.
Start date: 2011-04-01
End date: 2014-04-01
Schedule text: The Programme remains on schedule (as amended in July 2013). The Full Business Case was submitted and approved subject to conditions. The conditionality revolves around an evaluation by RAND after the next two years of roll out to confirm business benefits and value for money going forward. A detailed understanding of this process is still being sought and a work group has been set up to lead on this liaison. Key milestones reached during the past 12 months include the commissioning and mobilisation of Wave 3 which will increase coverage to above 68% of the English population. Work continues to deliver a scoping report on workforce and training development plan in conjunction with Health Education England and the Offender Health Collaborative. Work also continues to establish Peer support and mentoring and full inclusion of Lived Experience teams at strategic and operational level. Work continues to consider future benefits of integrated commissioing with other services i.e. Police healthcare, drugs and alcohol services. Greater Manchester have recently combined police custody healthcare and Liaison and Diversion in a tender process and the outcomes are being monitored.
Baseline: £39.80m
Forecast: £39.80m
Variance: 0.00%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £389.30m
WLCost text: Budgeted whole life costs include the cost of providing services to 100% of the English population, together with non-recurring programme costs to develop services and provide commissioning and implementation support. The current figures represent the outcome of the last spending review and the Full Business case. This has meant the full roll out has now had to be extended to end at 31/03/2021 even though 68% of the population of England will be covered by the end of 2016/17. The increase in whole life costs reflects the extended roll out period rather than any increase in the cost of service provision.
