Besides the much publicised guff about health and social care funding … the Residential Forum may find the following paragraphs interesting:
40 – the end of private payers cross subsidising publicly funded residents?
49a – the exclusion of care home managers from “professional” development – they mean social workers, nurses and OTs here?
55c – the return of inspection (oversight) of local authority commissioning practice – like care management including social work roles of assessment and reviews, like procurement and contract monitoring, maybe even safeguarding?
