Paul Burstow on the white paper and draft Bill – video

In this video, Paul Burstow makes the following points:

  • Care and support is something that most of us don’t think about until we need it
  • But 8 out of 10 of us will need care or support, or care for a family member
  • The Government is setting out a commitment to overhaul and reform the care and support system in England
  • The White Paper and draft bill set out:
    • national eligibility rules to govern the way people access health and social care services, which will also make it easier for the NHS and local social services and housing departments to work more closely together to meet peoples needs
    • how we can do more to prevent and postpone the onset of care needs in the first place
    • ways to provide good quality information so that people can make informed judgements about who would be a good provider of care for their family
    • a big change for carers to make sure they get the right support too
