The witnesses are:


  • Baroness Young of Old Scone, Chair of the Care Quality Commission

The Committee decided to inquire into the future of social care services following the publication earlier this year of the Government's Green Paper, Shaping the Future of Care Together. The inquiry is looking at options for:

  • personalisation of social care services
  • more effective, consistent and user-friendly social care services
