Turning Point Response to Law Commission Proposals

News item posted: 19 June 2017

Commenting on the Law Commission's final proposals following their Adult Social Care Project, Lord Victor Adebowale, Chief Executive of leading health and social care organisation, Turning Point said:

"This far reaching report provides an important foundation for encouraging and supporting integration.   This was one of the key issues raised by service users in our consultation response, along with the need for a simplified and speedy assessment. 

"Assessment is the cornerstone - get this right and the rest will follow.  Doing this effectively requires a qualified person, who is aware of the complex needs many service users have, to do the assessment at the right time, especially when requested."

"It is our hope, that if implemented successfully, these proposals could go some way towards reducing the complicated web of legislation which exists around adult social care."
