The challenges of long-term funding for adult social care

20 April 2018

The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee and Health and Social Care Committee question the NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens, the Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care at the Care Quality Commission, representatives from local government and the care provider sector as part of the inquiry into the long-term funding of adult social care.

Benefits of integrating health and social care

The meeting will focus on the current challenges facing adult social care providers, local government and NHS perspectives on social care, future funding and the benefits of integrating health and social care.

The session will also hear evidence from the Competition and Markets Authority on its study of the care market and the Committee will be questioning the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries on private insurance for social care.

Reforming care and support

The Government has confirmed its intention to present a Green Paper containing proposals to reform care and support for older people before the summer recess.

The inquiry seeks to identify funding reforms that will command broad consensus to allow progress in ensuring the long-term sustainability of both the health and care systems.

The full terms of reference are available here.
