This seminar will examine the future of social care and follows on from the Commission on Funding of Care and Support reporting last summer, which recommended social care costs in England should be capped so people do not face losing a large percentage of their assets. The seminar will examine the recommendations of the Commission, how social care fits in with a reformed NHS, what more can be done to integrate health and social care, the role of local government in service provision, and more widely, the future for social care provision and finance in England.
We are delighted to be able to include in this seminar keynote addresses from David Behan, Director General for Social Care, Local Government and Care Partnerships, Department of Health; Andrew Dilnot, former Chair, Commission on Funding of Care and Support and Dame Jo Williams, Chair, Care Quality Commission.
