social care services

The workforce skills report is produced by the Scottish Social Service Council (SSSC). This report examines data on: • the social services workforce in Scotland • key strategic workforce challenges for the sector • key skills issues • current training provision • future workforce issues.

Report that documents people's lived experience and imagined futures. It shares people's stories and ideas for new kinds of caring - caring that moves beyond servicing basic needs to enabling great living in late adulthood, be that having love-ins, eating lobster, or racing cars.

Survey that is the latest in a series of surveys conducted by the Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute on behalf of the Department of Health between spring 2000 and December 2012. The aim of the survey is to explore public attitudes towards, and perceptions of, the NHS and social care services, and to provide a means of tracking these perceptions and attitudes over time.

Report that develops the theme that social care and social work are, in some ways, uniquely  affected by wider changes in society. These changes can occur in relation to economics, attitudes, demographics, and policy. But all can have a profound effect on what is expected of,  and delivered by, social care services.

This report was published by Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in April 2013. Review date is April 2016. It describes the social care and wider governance arrangements in Northern Ireland and explains how the workbook was introduced and used in the trusts.

The purpose of this report is to offer practical help to develop more inclusive involvement for the future so that everyone who wants to be involved has equal opportunity to do so.

This report examines why some groups tend to be left out of schemes designed to promote greater user, or public/patient, involvement in public services. It explores who to ensure that all those who use long-term health and social care services could have a more equal chance of having a say and involvement in their lives and society.  

 

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 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.
