Partnership • “shifting the power from the state to the people, where people, in their every day lives, in their homes, in their neighbourhood, in their work place ….. don’t always turn to official, local authorities or central government for answers to the problems they face”. (David Cameron July 2010) • Continuation of Putting People First - Capable communities and • active citizens • Principles extended to the NHS – “No decision about me without • me” • Collaboration and strong partnership horizontally and vertically • At the same time government wants to curb local government • spending and the expectation is for councils to comply with the • policy and the requirements to reduce overall public expenditure.

Implications for Adult Social Care • Challenges • Continuous and rapid change for next 3 years • NHS and Adult Social Care required to achieve unprecedented efficiency gains despite increase and growth in funding • Invest in Prevention – identify models to suit all groups • Meeting needs and addressing inequalities • GPs responsible for commissioning majority of services • New governance arrangements for Health and Wellbeing Boards • Capacity building, culture shift and embedding the new structure • Opportunities • Leadership role for Adult Social Care at all levels • Ambition to increase quality through implementing best practice and increase options for prevention • Integrated re-ablement with investment for NHS long term conditions and improved responses to hospital discharge • Increase profile for public health • ASC will have major role for integration both in commissioning and service • Better intelligence on needs (JSNA/mortality profiles)
Efficiency • It’s grim! • Some councils are affected more than others • Maximise efficiency in any way possible • Service reductions are inevitable • A new, more sustainable model is needed: • state and individual • new funding arrangements for social care
Population • Still growing • Growing ever older and more diverse • 65+ Generation have £1trn of assets - in 2020 their assets will • exceed GDP and exceed national debt • Adults with complex needs are fastest growing and highest • demand client group for care and support - they have few assets • Inequality of health, wealth and opportunity widening
Health and Social Care • Putting People First - delivering but is it enough? • National Care Service - is there political will for a step change? • Integration - why this time? • Quality and innovation - can commissioning deliver?
Transformation • Putting People First • Personal budgets • Self Assessment • Independence at home • Shift from day and residential services • Prevention and re-ablement • National Care Service • Prevention and reablement • One assessment • One service • One budget • All pay/some pay? • Pay now/pay later? National / Local How far / How fast?
