Government white paper on NHS and Social Care reform is a tentative start
The white paper points to a new legal framework for the NHS and local government to provide integrated care systems but contains little concerning the reforms that are so badly needed in social care.

The white paper, whilst welcome, demonstrates the Government’s lack of understanding of the care sector, says the dedicated Social Care team at law firm Royds Withy King.
