Care England, the largest and most diverse representative body for independent providers of adult social care has welcomed the Department of Health and Social Care’s White Paper on adult social care reform. It believes that we need a new vision for social care underpinned by a long-term strategy to transform the system and enable care providers to have the resources and autonomy to enable citizens with health and social care needs to lead the best possible life.
Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England, says:
“This top level visionary White Paper sets out the Government’s direction of travel for the reform of adult social care. Care England stands ready to help the government deliver this strategy by identifying and dismantling some of the barriers standing in the way of delivering this vision.
People at the Heart of Care was published today.
Martin Green continues:
“Delivering this White Paper is going to be very difficult because of some of the major challenges facing the care sector, but we are all committed to starting on a journey that will deliver better outcomes for citizens and long-term sustainability for social care providers”.
