London councils set out eight-point social care rescue plan

London councils have lobbied Government for an eight-point action plan for social care.

In a new report, State of Adult Social Care in London 2019,the organisation representing all London councils, points out that Deprivation of Liberty of Safeguards will continue putting pressure on local budgets. In their demands, London Councils ask for:

  • Short-, medium- and long-term funding pressures in London should be fully met by government – in London this equates to £540 million by 2025.
  • Increased investment in the health and care workforce  
  • Development and empowerment of the voluntary and informal sector
  • Increase investment of health and care resources into community services and prevention services
  • National education and empowerment to increase the role of self-care and self-management
  • Further devolution of health and care – for example, commissioning of local services.
  • Integration between health and care must deliver better outcomes  
  • The Department of Health must publish its long-term plans for transforming the sector, particularly the long-term funding of adult social care.
