Briefing on the Francis Inquiry for Social Care Providers (VODG / NCF / Sue Ryder)

Summary

The Voluntary Organisations and Disability Groups (VODG), with the National Care Forum (NCF) and Sue Ryder, have produced a joint two-part briefing to explain the importance and relevance of the Francis Inquiry, and the resulting NHS reforms, from the perspective of social care providers.

Part 1 of “Why the Francis Inquiry matters to social care providers” covers the background to the inquiry and the policy response. Part 2 considers the implications of this inquiry (and other recent reviews) for social care providers.

General “improvement-related themes” are mentioned in the broad narrative: the message being that the issues and reforms are as relevant for social care providers as they have proven to be for providers of health services.
