The EHSCP receives funding to support Substance Misuse services from two different sources. In 2021/22 we will be protecting and investing services by targeting Seek, Keep and Treat monies, thereby realising efficiencies from the core budgets. There will be no service or policy change as a result of this saving.
Therefore, following due consideration it has been identified that an Integrated Impact Assessment (IIA) is not required for this proposal because it will not result in any change to policy, nor result in any services changing or ceasing. The proposal is to protect Seek, Keep and Treat monies, thereby realising efficiencies from core budgets through slippage. As such the proposal will not differentially affect groups of people with protected characteristics.
