NHS Evidence - health management - Fri, 11/11/2016 - 12:25

Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) - 
This report argues that adult social care will struggle to continue to provide good services that meet rising demand without significant transformation. It explores the potential for scaling up some of the most promising examples of care and support services, using data from Birmingham City Council, to see what their impact would be on outcomes and costs. It finds that total transformation of care and support indicates potential improvements in outcomes for individuals, and potential savings of £6.6 million to the adult social care budget, along with £1.4 million to the NHS, per year, if three promising models were fully scaled up in Birmingham.
