'Significant' Changes To Be Made To Adult Social Care

Tuesday March 18 2014

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

PATIENTS will be able to compare hospitals and care homes with Ofsted-style ratings from next year.

The Care Bill will replace more than a dozen separate pieces of legislation with more modern laws and will put those who receive care and support more in control of their own lives.

Coun Jenny Platts, spokesman for adults and communities, told the council's ruling cabinet the bill is a critical step in reforming care and support and introduces a cap on the costs people will have to pay for care.

"It sets out the most significant change in adult social care for decades," she said.

It will give the new chief inspector of hospitals the power to instigate a process to tackle unresolved problems more effectively.

Much of the details are subject to further consultation which will emerge as regulations and policy guidance are developed throughout the year.

Most aspects will be implemented from April 2015 with funding reform provisions coming into force from April 2016.

Know what you mean, we had a practice lesson and told what questions to ask and answers to questions. When inspectors came we repeated the samelesson even though we should have been doing something else. Why bother? Inspections are a big con.

I think the inspections should b carried out on the spot with no warnings to the hospitals or school to show how they are truely working instead of making sure it's by the book just when the inspectors are there that is not a true account of how they are run I know for sure that most would fail if they inspected them on the spot

I agree should be on the spot inspections. By independent people too in my experience I have known serious complaints be made n they just get swept under the carpet n employees told to shut up or leave!
