Do we need a new settlement for health and social care?

Posted by on June 14, 2014 in Home Page | 0 comments

The Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England is asking whether the post-war settlement, which established separate systems for health and social care, is still fit for purpose. 

In its interim report, the commission explains why it believes England needs a single health and social care system, with a ring-fenced, singly commissioned budget, and more closely aligned entitlements. Drawing on accounts from patients and their families, the commission argues that the current system is no longer fit for purpose.
