    Anchor institutions are large organisations, connected to their local area, that can use their assets and resources to benefit the communities around them. Health and care organisations, as well as providing healthcare services, are well-placed to use their influence and resources to improve the social determinants of health, health outcomes and reduce health inequalities. This King's Fund event will explore what anchor institutions are, what they look like in practice and how we can embed some of those ways of working within health and care. We will look at how health and care organisati

However, despite having a similar skillset, social care workers receive £7,000 more a year than social care workers, charity claims.

    Social care in England is not usually provided for free, and many people have found it a challenge to pay for. Social care organisations are urging ministers to publish plans to revise how the sector in England is funded. The government has promised to publish the funding plans by the end of the year.

    An independent review has found that children's services are not providing enough early support and are too focused on investigating families in crisis. The system was found to be under significant strain with the review suggesting that under the current system, it was not sustainable long-term. For those families in crisis who ask for help, it was reported that the process to apply for support caused more added stress and strain. At present, the service is failing young people and families in need of help and support. The review is to be published in Spring 2022 along with a

    Tens of thousands of people with dementia are taken to hospital each year for emergency admission because inadequate social care has left them unprotected from infections, falls and dehydration, an investigation has found. There has been a 27% increase over a four-year period in avoidable illnesses and injuries caused by failures in care for those living with dementia, according to the Alzheimer’s Society. “This news comes just under a week after the Queen’s speech frustratingly made only a brief mention of the prime minister’s promise nearly two years ago to deliver a clear plan for

    The government has confirmed its commitment to bring in new health legislation during this Parliament, but social care reform has again been ‘kicked into the long grass’. Today’s Queen’s Speech confirmed that planned, radical changes to the Health and Social Care Bill 2012 will be laid before Parliament this year. The changes, first outlined in the government’s proposals this February, will put integrated care systems on a statutory footing, dissolve clinical commissioning groups, water down the internal market within the NHS and increase the powers the health secretary has over NHS

    Elderly and vulnerable people could be forced to move out of their own homes into institutional care unless the chancellor invests billions of pounds to shore up social services and reform England’s broken care model, The Independent has been told. In an exclusive interview ahead of Rishi Sunak’s Budget on Wednesday, James Bullion, president of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), warned the care system risked “catastrophic failure in some areas” without urgent changes to the way vulnerable people, including younger disabled people, are looked after. He warn

    The government must immediately deliver a new deal for social care with major investment and better terms for workers, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has said, as it warned that the sector is “fragile” heading into a second wave of coronavirus infections. In a challenge to ministers, the regulator’s chief executive, Ian Trenholm, said overdue reform of the care sector “needs to happen now – not at some point in the future”. Boris Johnson said in his first speech as prime minister, in July 2019: “We will fix the crisis in social care once and for all.” But no reform has yet been pr

    Recommendations The NHS and local authorities must set out how they will involve social care providers and care homes in winter pressure planning to ensure that social care is placed on an equal footing with the NHS, and that their situation is understood, accounted for and supported. This must include the provision of regular and timely testing and PPE. National UK governments must guarantee that where care was stopped due to coronavirus precautions (particularly domiciliary care), it will be reinstated when deemed safe, without the need for unnecessary further formal assessment.

    The taskforce carefully considered an extensive range of issues in relation to the social care sector as a whole, brought together as key themes. These included the provision of personal protective equipment, COVID-19 testing arrangements, the winter flu vaccination programme, infection prevention and control, and issues of funding. The taskforce examined a number of issues relating to the workforce and family carers (unpaid), including how best to restrict the movement of people between care and health settings. Among other themes, the taskforce reviewed the role of clinical support within th

    NHS England has been asked for a “clear plan and timescale” for development during covid of its controversial scheme which aims to provide extra support for care homes. In its adult social care winter plan the government has advised NHS England to push forward with the rollout of the “enhanced health in care homes” programme, ensuring that all care homes are assigned to primary care networks by 1 October. The scheme requires GP practices to provide extra clinical support and advice to homes. PCNs should also nominate a clinical lead for the care homes and work with other provide

    Quality of care before the pandemic The care that people received in 2019/20 was mostly of good quality However, while quality was largely maintained compared with the previous year, there was no improvement overall Before the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic, we remained concerned about a number of issues: the poorer quality of care that is harder to plan for the need for care to be delivered in a more joined-up way the continued fragility of adult social care provision the struggles of the poorest services to make any improvement
