Reforms Are Needed to Keep Social Care Funding Moving Forward

Using Health & Social Care Bill to protect social care funding. The new bill encourages equal treatment and partnership between the public health sector and the social care sector. It would include an annual national legal obligation that whatever the annual rise in NHS funding, the current level of social care funding should be applied to the adult social care. This would avoid any future disputes between these two sectors.

Understanding Key Changes And Developments

It also allows for a negotiation between the health and social care funding bodies on how to share the funding burden. It is hoped that this will reduce the pressure on NHS hospitals as they struggle with the demand for extra staff, and may even lead to the introduction of some forward planning by health authorities to ensure that future difficulties can be avoided. But there is one major problem, an entire generation of adults who are growing up without any form of healthcare background. That should not be a problem if the government can introduce legislation that encourages parents to have a family health check as a parent’s basic health check. No more long waits for treatment or any form of emotional disturbance as a result of long waits for treatment. This may well stimulate a return to the traditional family health care where parents check on their childrens’ healthcare.

The social care funding announcements also imply a need for additional social care services. This may well be met by introducing a similar formula to local authorities to allocate funding to local authorities. By doing this, it would remove the discretion that local authorities used to decide which cases were best managed by them and increased the amount of funding available to all local authorities. The additional social care funding would be provided to all local authorities irrespective of their local health needs. Local health authorities have the ability to designate one area of their area as a feed back area where case studies and priority cases are reported.

Improving The Economy And Other Areas

There are other ways of using social care funding to improve the local economy. Some councils use the funds to conduct community projects in areas that would otherwise not be accessed by the general public. For example, in East Riding of Yorkshire the local council has an advertising campaign to promote local enterprise, while North Ayrshire Council is providing training and other information packages to people who are having a difficult time paying their council tax. By encouraging the public to take part in these projects, council tax payers will gain access to essential services, and as they are gaining income through employment, this will make up for the increased council tax. By improving the health and wellbeing of the local population through better infrastructure, better services and more affordable housing, the wider community benefits from these investments.

Another way forward for reform is to ensure that the care provided by professionals is of the highest standard possible. By ensuring that practitioners are trained in a properly designated area of medicine and that they are following strict professional guidelines and rules, the quality of patient care improves. Professional and hospital staff should also have proper documentation and accreditation, as this shows the public that the quality of service provided is of a high standard. This is another way forward for social care reform, as it provides people with a greater sense of security, knowing that their healthcare providers are trained to the highest standards and that they are following strict regulation.

In addition to this, the government must provide more funding to help cover the running costs of the health service, as well as ensuring that the right levels of staffing are available at all times. It is important to remember that whilst this may seem like a complicated system, it is made much simpler by the various pieces of health legislation that are in place. The government must provide the funding to cover the running costs of running the health service and to introduce new policies for better public health and safety. If the government cannot do so themselves, there are various bodies that can step in to provide the funding for them, such as the NHS, private companies and charity. Whatever way the government takes action on reform social care funding, they must provide an adequate level of funding to keep the system moving forwards.
