health and social care
In Scotland co-production is no longer just a ‘nice idea’ but a necessity to deal with increasing health inequalities (Sir Harry Burns) and changing demographics and expectations (Gerry Power).
This book shows how and why Scotland has become one of the leaders in public service co-production – and how the lessons learnt so far can be applied more widely.
Paper that shows how the personalisation agenda encourages innovation, offering the potential to create new markets around localised and individual needs, to focus fiscal resources directly and discretely, and to enable small groups of individuals to ‘positively disrupt’ a complex and opaque system.
It begins with a potted history of personalisation, and ends with five recommendations for the implementation of personalisation, whatever the sector, in a way that increases the availability and use of new, communitybased approaches to support and inclusion.
Study that seeks to provide a more theoretically and empirically robust understanding of the dynamic relationship between joint commissioning, services and outcomes, thereby addressing three main questions:
Consultation that follows on from an announcement made by the Cabinet Secretary for Health, Wellbeing and Cities Strategy on 12 December 2011, which outlined the Scottish Government’s proposals for integration of adult health and social care.
Report that outlines the findings and recommendations from an independent review conducted by the Nuffield Trust into whether the Government should introduce ‘Ofsted-style’ performance ratings for hospitals, general practices, care homes and other adult social care providers.
Report based on qualitative research involving focus groups with volunteers and patients, in-depth interviews with commissioners and providers of health and social care services, and a scenario analysis conducted with a workshop of invited experts. It also draws on a review of published evidence and benefited from the insights of an external advisory group.
Document that describes the big picture challenges facing the health and social care system in England that have implications on educating, training and developing the health workforce.
Report that identifies the impacts which demographic change and an ageing population will have primarily on the public finances in respect of the provision of health and social care, housing, and pensions and the labour force, and the planning being undertaken by the Scottish Government and key public bodies to mitigate such impacts.
Report that analyses the factors that influence the demand for health and social care, taking a long-term perspective. It shows that pressures to increase spending on health and social care will result in these services consuming an increasing proportion of gross domestic product.
The exact proportion will depend on how quickly the economy itself grows, and on the choices made about the levels of taxation, government borrowing and public spending priorities.
Series of case studies, which provide practical examples of bringing together housing, health and care, deliver savings of between £2,946 and £17,992 a year compared to less integrated pathways.
