Matt Hancock envisages greater proportion of domiciliary careMatt Hancock envisages greater proportion of domiciliary care

Matt Hancock MP, Health and Social Care Secretary, said he envisages a much greater proportion of homecare to residential care in future with help from technology, when giving evidence to the Lords' Economic Affairs Committee's inquiry into social care funding in England.

The minister referred to domiciliary care as cheaper, offering a better quality of life and the option people prefer. He said the Green Paper continues to be worked on and implied it has not been cleared by Cabinet colleagues. He is highly sceptical that housing assets should be used to pay for homecare and clearly favours some sort of insurance model, with a cap and risk-pooling.
