Section 75 National Health Service Act 2006 Agreement

This consultation sets out a proposed agreement for the way that the Council and the Newcastle Gateshead CCG work together in relation to certain children's placements

This consultation sets out a proposal for Newcastle City Council and the NHS Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to change the way that we work together in relation to the following placements:

  • Placements in Department for Education registered, non-maintained and independent special schools and colleges; 52-week residential, termly boarder, weekly boarder and day placements.  All placements in these settings for children and young people aged 0 – 25 years (inclusive),

  • Placements in Ofsted registered, Independent Children’s Residential Homes for Children and Young People 0 – 18 years, and

  • Residential short-break services for Children and Young People 0 – 18 years

The change proposed would involve the Council and the CCG entering into an Agreement under Section 75 of the National Health Service Act 2006.

The practical impact of this agreement would be to formalise the existing arrangements. The Council would exercise the CCG’s functions in relation to service users accessing these Placements.  It would, however, do so on a delegated basis, which means that the CCG would still be ultimately responsible in law for the proper discharge of those NHS functions. 

The purpose of the consultation is to:

  • seek feedback about whether the Council has considered all the relevant issues and whether there are any additional issues that need to be considered; and

  • understand the impact that any such Section 75 Agreement may have upon any party impacted by the decision but particularly Providers of placements within the market or any Child/Young Person  accessing placements as a service user or a parent/carer for a Child/Young Person

Consultation responses can be made via the Let’s Talk portal or can be emailed to

Alternatively you can write to:

Angela Jamson
Commissioner, Social Care
Newcastle City Council
Room 115
Civic Centre

All feedback to the consultation must be received by 12 June 2017 at 12 noon.
