DOH releases Care and Support White Paper

The Department of Health has published the ‘Caring for Our Future: Reforming Care and Support’ White Paper, which sets out the Government’s vision for a reformed care and support system. 

The proposed new system will:

  • Focus on people’s wellbeing and support them to stay independent for as long as possible
  • Introduce greater national consistency in access to care and support
  • Provide better information to help people make choices about their care
  • Give people more control over their care
  • Improve support for carers
  • Improve the quality of care and support
  • Improve integration of different services

You can download the full version of the White Paper or the easy read accessible version.
