Caring for our Future: Reforming care and support
I am happy with the quality of my care and support.
This section of the Social Care White Paper talks about empowering people to make decisions about their own care and support through radical improvements to information on the options available to them. Local authorities and care providers will be able to respond more effectively to what people want and the concerns they have. This will drive improvements to the quality of care and support so that people can be confident that it will be of a high standard.
The White Paper covers a broad range on key issues, affecting quality of care. It talks about the key ingredients of good quality care, age discrimination, information about quality and the development of ‘comparison website’, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) role in developing quality standards in social care, dementia care in residential settings, safeguarding, commissioning and market failure.
