Sector representatives, including the Homecare Association. have been asked to co-produce the System Reform White Paper with policymakers. This is one of three White Papers to be published following the Prime Minister’s Build Back Better plan for health and care.
A letter from Michelle Dyson, Director General for Adult Social Care, says the Department for Health and Social Care will work:
- to make the vision for reform real,
- co-develop the detail by setting up White Paper Advisory Groups for workforce, housing, unpaid carers, models of care, information and advice, assurance, and digital and technology; and
- to design priorities for reform beyond the next Spending Review period.
Questions for consideration include how people can be supported to live in the community, and how to ensure adult social care is a rewarding career.
The development process will involve working with local networks, organisations representing people who use care and with leaders in local government and the social care sector, service users and carers, as well as the NHS.
We will pass on news of opportunities to get involved. In the meantime, members are invited to send their views on system reform to [email protected]
