Westminster Health Forum

I was delighted to Chair the Westminster Health Forum on Thursday 9 February. This seminar examined the future of social care, following on from the Commission on Funding of Care and Support reporting last summer, which recommended social care costs in England should be capped so people do not face losing a large percentage of their assets. The seminar  examined the recommendations of the Commission, how social care fits in with a reformed NHS, what more can be done to integrate health and social care, the role of local government in service provision, and more widely, the future for social care provision and finance in England.  It was a fascinating event, and I really hope that what was discussed here will be of great use with forthcoming NHS reforms.
