Review into the Future of Adult Social Care Funding

Reform of adult social care provision is an issue of fundamental importance to local councils, their future financial sustainability and their local communities. EMC's Executive Board established a Task and Finish Group to highlight specific local pressures and challenges, and to develop shared thinking across the sector.

The Task and Finish Group's final report - and accompanying data from the National Adult Social Care Intelligence Service (NASCIS) - will be considered by EMC's Executive Board on 27th September 2013. Both documents are available below.

In September 2012 the Leader of East Midlands Councils wrote to the Secretary of State for Health to record concerns and ask that the decision to end Children's Congenital Heart Surgery at Glenfield Hospital be urgently reviewed. EMC has also submitted responses to the Health and Social Care Bill, the NHS Listening Exercise on NHS modernisation and "Fairer Care Funding – The Report of the Commission on Funding of Care and Support" (the Dilnot Commission).
