At a recent event in Manchester, PA Consulting Group, along with our partners at the New Local Government Network think-tank, asked health and social care leaders to challenge some ‘sacred cows’ in health and social care.
We urged them to consider the radical solutions that may be required if the UK is to have the sustainable, fit-for-purpose system it needs. 'The knockout idea' captures the comments and thoughts of health and social care leaders who attended this event. Some of the key questions tackled included:
Are we being over-optimistic about the benefits that integration will bring?
At what point should responsibility and delivery of care be put in the hands of central government so local government can prioritise its core purpose of being leaders of places?
For social care to be sustainable, where should the cost burden fall? What innovative funding and investment models might be developed to ensure the sustainability of the system?
