Dear Janet,

Re: Call for Report Evidence State of the Nation: The Social Care Challenge: Implementing a Connected System

Public Policy Projects (PPP) is pleased to announce that it is working on a major new report entitled State of the Nation: The Social Care Challenge: Implementing a Connected System, which is set to be launched in July 2021.

For too long, the UK social care system has been in sustained pandemonium. Social care reforms have been proposed by successive governments, yet budgetary concerns have continued to prevail over political will for change.

The report will propose original recommendations for four key areas of social care policy: Funding, Innovation, Integration and Infrastructure. In particular, the report will consider the viability of a nationally funded, but locally delivered model as an alternative to local council tax or national Dilnot proposals to fund social care.    

As Chair of the report, I am really pleased to be working with PPP on this important area. Sorting out social care is an urgent task for the Government, and providing practical policy advice to help the process is itself an important role. 

Call-out for evidence:

We are seeking evidence and case studies that illustrate examples of best practice at local level to deliver sustainable care services in three key areas: 

  1. Innovation: Exploring the adoption of new solutions and ways of working in conjunction with innovative technologies that provide value for care givers and receivers, organisations providing care and support the system as a whole. 
  2. Integration: Exploring the interoperability between health and care records, the intelligent use of data, and the systemwide connection in national leadership, workforce plans, and local government authorities. The overall aim being to create a joined-up health and care experience for the individual.
  3. Infrastructure: Exploring the infrastructure solutions available to enhance interconnectivity and deliver place-based health solutions for elderly care recipients whilst also providing value for money. 

Please note that PPP is able to cover the costs of consulting and implementing public sector case studies into the report through commercial partnerships with private sector organisations that want to be a part of this exciting programme of works.

All case studies will be used to inform the recommendations and outputs of the report, which will be presented to government in order to a) feed into social care reforms and future legislation and, b) be incorporated into the forthcoming Comprehensive Spending Review in the Autumn.
