    Top health economist devises social care funding proposal

    21.10.17 Ahead of the government’s long-awaited consultation on social care funding, health economist William Laing has proposed a scheme in which individuals would spend up to a quarter of their assets on social care before receiving state funding. Under Laing’s “Personal Asset Protection Guarantee” scheme, people would keep around three-quarters of their assets in the event of needing residential care in old age. “People need a straightforward and effective mechanism which allows them to plan for their long-term care without worrying this will become a burden for their families, either before or after their death,” Laing said.

    NHS Confederation members pessimistic about winter outlook

    20.10.17 NHS Confederation head Niall Dickson has said that the health and care system is fragile and will struggle to cope with winter pressures. A poll by the confederation suggests that more than 90% of health and care leaders across England are concerned about their organisation’s ability to handle demand while 62% are “extremely concerned”. Dickson said: “Last year it was said that the service was 'just about coping,’ but for many of our members this year looks more challenging. Not only is there the prospect of ongoing pressure, high bed occupancy, and DTOC [delayed hospital discharge] blockages in flow, but the worry too of a serious flu attack combined with bad weather. NHS improvement data shows A&E attendances and admissions are continuing to rise – with a 25.9% jump in responses to time-critical and life-threatening ambulance calls.”
