UKHCA on the blueprint for social care reform white paperUKHCA on the blueprint for social care reform white paper

The blueprint for NHS and social care reform following the pandemic has been launched by the Department of Health and Social Care.

Commenting on the news, UKHCA's Policy Director Colin Angel said:

“Today’s White Paper promises to lay some of the foundations for longer-term reform of the adult social care system in England, including a more joined-up approach to social care and health. Of particular interest is what could be an answer to UKHCA’s consistent calls for greater oversight and accountability of the commissioning of social care by local government and the NHS. If delivered well, this could ensure that market-shaping responsibilities in the Care Act 2014 are properly met. Improved powers for the Secretary of State to make payments directly to adult social care providers, where appropriate, will provide a way of avoiding delays which have characterised emergency funding during the pandemic”.
