CQC Release Report: 'The State of Health Care and Adult Social Care in England 2017/18
Wednesday, 10th October 2018
The CQC has released their report: 'The State of Health care and Adult Social Care in England 2017/18.'
In it, they describe the current state of care in England as an ‘integration lottery’ concerning health and care services.
The Commission said ‘ineffective collaboration’ between health and care services affected access to care in the community and ‘too many cases’ of ineffective coordination resulting in ‘fragmented care’.
The regulator warned of too much focus on individual organisations (in relation to funding, commissioning, regulation and performance) which ‘all conspired’ to hinder people’s chances of receiving joined-up care based on individual’s needs.
