About the joint management group

Home visit

Oxfordshire County Council has an existing and long-standing agreement under Section 75 of the National Health Services Act 2006 with Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group to pool resources and deliver shared objectives, often referred to as “pooled budgets”. Pooling budgets enable better integration of health and social care, leading to a better experience and outcomes for people and their carers.

Oxfordshire has the largest genuinely pooled budgets in the country that reflects our commitment to joining up our commissioning and using resources flexibly for the benefit of people who need care. Our pooled budgets cover services for all adults (older people, people with physical disabilities, people with learning disabilities, and people with mental health needs) and their carers who use jointly funded services.

There is a separate Section 75 agreement between the county council and Oxford Health which relates to the Mental Health Providers JMG.

The pooled budgets are governed by the Joint Management Group for Adults that oversees the delivery of joint health and wellbeing strategy priorities relating to adults, and monitors finance, activity and performance in commissioning for adults.

The Joint Management Group meets four times a year and meetings are held in public. It reports to the Health and Wellbeing Board, Oxfordshire County Council Cabinet and the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

The group is chaired by Councillor Judith Heathcoat (Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care). Senior officers from Oxfordshire County Council and Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group are members of the Joint Management Group.

Fulya Markham is the officer for the Joint Management Group. You can contact Fulya on fulya.markham@oxfordshire.gov.uk or 07776 997956.
