7 PATHWAY FOR CARE: REVISED BUSINESS PLAN

In July 2016, the Executive agreed to form a Health and Social Care company known as Pathway for Care Limited. The company was officially incorporated on 22 August 2016.


The Shareholder Agreement outlined the requirements for preparing a Business Plan and a revised business plan had been prepared by the Directors, building on the learning and experience of the first nine months of operation of the company, Pathway for Care.


The revised Business Plan set out the objectives for customer growth in 2017/18. Based on the financial projections, Pathway for Care was expected to generate a financial surplus in 2018/19.


RESOLVED that:


(i) the revised Pathway for Care Business Plan be noted (as set out in the Exempt part 2 section of the agenda); and
(ii) the Leader of the Council, as the Council’s shareholder representative, be authorised to approve the revised Business Plan at the next Shareholders Meeting.
 

Reasons for decision:
A strong business plan was critical for the success of Pathway for Care, of which the Council was the majority shareholder.


Alternative options:
To ask Officers to work with Pathway for Care to review the Business Plan options further and present them to a future meeting.
 

8 PATHWAY FOR CARE: LOAN AND RESOURCE AGREEMENTS

In July 2016, the Executive agreed to form a Health and Social Care company known as Pathway for Care Limited. The company was officially incorporated on 22 August 2016.


The Shareholder function of the Council was primarily executed through the Health & Wellbeing Executive Sub Committee. The Sub Committee remit was to undertake all functions of the Council as majority shareholder under the Companies Act 2006. This included approval of a range of documents required to support the company.


A Loan and Draw Down Agreement and Resourcing Agreement, between the Council and Pathway for Care, were set out in the exempt Part 2 part of the agenda for approval. These set out the detailed arrangements for lending to the company and the provision of other (non-financial) resources.


RECOMMENDED that the Loan and Draw Down Agreement between the Council and Pathway for Care, as presented in the exempt Part 2 section of the agenda, be approved including the increased loan ceiling.


RESOLVED that the Resourcing Agreement between the Council and Pathway for Care, presented in the exempt Part 2 section of the agenda, be approved.
