    This report from the Public Policy Projects recommends: 1. Qualitative research into the benefits that well-funded social care can have on quality of life, independency, isolation, relationships and general wellbeing. This should be combined with formal quantitative research into the impacts that properly funded social care can have on the NHS, including quantifiable information about hospital bed availability and the economic impact of the reduction of accidents and preventable illness. 2. There should be clear public guidelines on the social care system and how to access social ca

    The inquiry will cover people living in residential care homes, hospitals and supported housing, as well as those receiving social care services in their own homes. It will look at: What human rights issues need to be addressed in care settings, beyond the immediate concerns arising from the Covid-19 pandemic? How effective are providers at respecting the human rights of people under their care? How effective are regulators in protecting residents from human rights breaches and in supporting patients and residents who make complaints about their care provider?

    The Ombudsman investigates complaints about local councils and care providers in England, getting involved when things have gone badly wrong. This report, which analyses its cases over the first 18 months of the pandemic, shows that, by and large, councils and care providers weathered the unprecedented pressures they were under. But, when things did go wrong it had a serious impact on people’s lives. Cases highlighted in the report include a woman who died from COVID-19 at a care home with poor infection control procedures which was then compounded by staff later trying to cover up the fa

    In summer 2020, Baroness Cavendish carried out a review of adult social care. Her review looked at the question: ‘how can we lock in the lessons of the COVID-19 crisis to build a more robust, sustainable, joined-up system of health and social care?’. The aim of the report was to review and make recommendations for social care reform and integration with health in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, to inform the government’s plans for reform. The report proposes a wide range of recommendations for adult social care system reform. The government have since taken forward a number of the

    Despite the best efforts of staff, the current system means that too often patients find themselves having to navigate complex and disjointed systems. Those with multiple conditions can be left feeling frustrated at having to repeatedly explain their needs to multiple people in different organisations, while others can end up facing delayed discharge because the NHS and local authorities are working to different priorities in a way that is not as joined up as it could be.better transparency and choice – if local authorities and the NHS share data and are more transparent about their performanc

If a contaminated needle or other medical instrument penetrates the skin of another person, there is a serious risk that it will transmit bloodborne viruses and infections, including HIV and hepatitis. The European Biosafety Network reports that the situation has been made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic, resulting in an average 23% increase in incidents across five European cou
