News item posted: 19 June 2017

In response to the report from the Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England published today by the King's Fund, Lord Victor Adebowale, Chief Executive of Turning Point said;

"I fully agree that a new approach which sees care designed around individual need, not simply diagnosis, is paramount. We need to move to a single integrated budget that follows the individual and brings services together. At the heart of this move is the knowledge that the distinction between health and social care does not mean anything to the patient; patients want excellent care that meets their individual needs. We need to ensure that funding reflects this."
