Westminster Social Policy Forum

The future for adult social care in England: funding, integration and workforce challenges

Morning, Thursday, 2nd November 2017

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess priorities for social care policy in the new Parliament.


Planned sessions focus on the future role of the CQC in regulating and inspecting the sector, as well as next steps for joining up health and social care, with concerns regarding long term funding of social care and the need for better integration with the NHS.


It will also be an opportunity to assess key issues for the social care workforce as the UK begins the process of withdrawing from the EU, and key findings from the expected National Audit Office report on how government and other national bodies are working with local authorities and other providers to ensure there are enough paid workers with skills to meet rising demand.
