Today, Care England launches its manifesto, which provides a future government with a roadmap to an outcomes based health and social care framework. In a difficult financial climate, it is important that all parts of the system are treated fairly and work together in the interests of the people who use services, and this manifesto is written with that goal in mind.
Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England, said:
“The conversation on how we care for individuals accessing health and social care services must move from discussion on the nature of these services to the outcomes that they achieve for the individual. This won’t require structural reform, but will necessitate a change in culture that ensures all parts of the system work together to deliver on what is important for the person involved.”
“By focusing on innovation, the workforce, commissioning and provision, this manifesto provides a list of recommendations which, if implemented, will ensure that our health and care system meets the needs of a twenty-first century society.”
