The consultation will run until the 26th September 2018.

Adult social care matters
Escalating funding pressures and increasing demand are threatening services that improve lives and communities. We cannot go on like this.
It is time to confront the hard choices and be honest about the options. This is our chance to put adult social care right at the very heart of the Government’s thinking.
Almost all background can be found in the main GREEN PAPER SOCIAL CARE FUNDING thread :

https://www.carersuk.org/forum/support- ... ness-32659

Consultations ?

7.8 MILLION family carers out there ... around 2 MILLION said to have no regular access to the Internet.

How many will even know that there is a gateway for their views to be heard ?

At best a couple of hundred on this forum .... how about the rest ?

Future of social care funding ?

Already been decided ... just like in 2009 !

###################################################################

Way forward ?

Recombine the NHS and social care.

FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE.

Fund both from general taxation.

Cancer treatment ... free under the NHS ... costing £'000s per patient.

Dementia ... based on the ability to pay ... wash and brush up , £ 15+ per hour !

Both are illnesses.

Where is the " Fairness " in that ?

This is the actual link to have your say

I'm sure lots of us have lots to say on it :)
Interesting.

To achieve the correct answer from a family carer's perspective , one has to change the question round so that it relates to CarerLand.

No question actually refers directly to family carers ... as if we were a by-product of the System as opposed to it's focal point.

Still , somewhat heavy going ... I trust that we will have a more , direct , opportunity somewhere down the line ?

The words PIGS and FLY spring to mind.

Even condemned convicts are allowed a final word.

Parity with condemned convicts ... please ?
They've included a section for individuals here
http://www.futureofadultsocialcare.co.u ... een-paper/
You have to read each section and comment below it
I suggest we all comment on the major omission of the care given by 7.5 million of us, and anything else we want to say
One ongoing thread which will interlock with this one.

The meltdown in the LAs continues ... which should add some spice in most replies ?

https://www.carersuk.org/forum/news-and ... 10#p385610

On first reading , isn't the LA's Central Committee advocating it's member LAs to be the bastion for social care ?

.... and if that bastion is falling down , LA by LA , what then ?

Care Act , 2014 a good question.

IF the LAs complied with it , it WOULD BE effective !!!

They are DIRECTLY responsible for it not being effective !!!
