An atlas of variations in social care: an analysis of the quality of social care services in England
The Government’s NHS and social care reforms are designed to deliver world class outcomes for patients and users. In social care the success of the reforms will be judged against delivery of improved outcomes in four outcomes domains in the ASCOF:
• Enhancing quality of life for people with care and support needs
• Delaying and reducing the need for care and support
• Ensuring that people have a positive experience of care and support
• Safeguarding adults whose circumstances make them vulnerable and protecting from avoidable harm
This atlas of variations in social care finds widespread variations in the delivery of outcomes in each of these domains.
