Fair access to care services (FACS): prioritising eligibility for care and support

The future landscape of assessment and eligibility

This guide was written while the Care Bill 2013 was still being discussed in Parliament and the substance, numbers of clauses and the wording of the Bill may be subject to change during its passage through Parliament .The Bill also makes clear that much of the detail of its operation will be contained in regulations and guidance.

Extensive consultation prior to the publication of the Bill in 2013 showed that:

The draft Bill was subject to public consultation, and to scrutiny by a joint committee of MPs and members of the House of Lords, [27] who took evidence and reported with recommendations in March 2013. The Government’s response was published alongside the Care Bill in May 2013.
