The Better Care Fund requires collaborating bodies to enter into a Section 75 Agreement to: establish a framework for the provision of health and social care services through a joint commissioning arrangement; to establish a Better Care Fund; and to maintain pooled funds out of which payment may be made towards expenditure incurred in the exercise of prescribed local authority functions and prescribed NHS functions.
