The submission covers: Sectoral location (public/private) of social care, the need for fundamental quality improvement in care services, management and workforce development, and new approaches to funding. Argues the case for bringing social care into the public sector (currently it's nearly all (90%) in private sector) in order to improve its quality and geographical availability. These issues need much more discussion in public debate. It suggests new approaches to funding - including fully-funded through NI and general taxation. An integrated service (NHS and Social Care) can only be achieved through unified funding from the Treasury - to end the way in which central government can at whim impose austerity on local councils which then affects/curtails provision of council funded social care. More attention needs to be given to social care. Too long little understood, ignored and neglected.
