Securing good care for older people

September 2017

Ageing

Country of origin: UK

More than one million older people (aged 65 and over) use publicly funded social care services in England. In light of criticism and controversy about the funding of these services, the King?s Fund commissioned Sir Derek Wanless to undertake a review of social care. The review sought to determine how much should be spent on social care for older people in England over the next 20 years and what funding arrangements need to be in place to ensure that this money is available and will produce high-quality outcomes. This report of their findings will make a significant contribution to the debate on the future of social care.

The full report and a summary version are available.
