Care Act first-phase reforms

NHS Evidence - health management - Thu, 11/06/2015 - 12:36

National Audit Office -

Ninety-nine per cent of local authorities were confident that they would able to carry out the Act reforms from April 2015. However, it warns that the cost estimates and chosen funding mechanisms have put local authorities under increased financial risk given the uncertain level of demand for adult social care. It concludes that in a challenging financial environment, with pressure on all services, authorities may not have enough resources to respond if demand for care exceeds expectations. It also finds that the Department of Health consulted carefully on the Act, to understand the main risks and respond to sector concerns, and there is wide support for the Act.
