star this property answer text <p>Since 2015, the National Health Service contribution to the Better Care Fund (BCF) has included funding to support the implementation of the Care Act 2014, including £130 million which has been made available each year for Carers’ Breaks via the NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCG) minimum contribution to the BCF.</p><p>Locally agreed between local authorities (LAs) and CCGs, joint BCF plans set out the level of resource that will be dedicated to carer-specific support, including carers’ breaks, and identify how the chosen methods for supporting carers will help to meet key outcomes. These BCF plans are agreed locally at Health and Wellbeing Board level as part of the BCF Assurance process, and funding is released under the premise that the requirements and conditions of the Fund are met. The local level allocation data is not readily available at a national level.</p><p>We recognise the importance of carers being able to take a break from their caring role. Through the Carers Action Plan, we have committed to promoting best practice for LAs, service providers and commissioners on carer breaks and respite care. In doing so this will support them to help carers to take a break by highlighting best practice and provide advice and information for carers seeking respite breaks.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is a joint venture between the public and private sectors, led by Legacy Park Ltd with partners Sheffield City Council, Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It aims to be a model of social inclusion bringing new jobs and communities together. For example, the National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine Sheffield, which opened in September 2015, brings together clinical services, sport and exercise specialists and health professionals to make it easier for physical activity to become part of the treatment for a range of chronic health conditions. This model has delivered a more efficient and effective service for staff and patients and increased capacity to deal with musculoskeletal problems by 50%. It has also delivered significant improvements in National Health Service staff health and wellbeing through the workplace wellness programme. An independent evaluation by York University Centre for Health Economics estimated an economic return on investment of 300%.</p>
