Social Care Partners Forum – Key Messages

Key Messages from the meeting on 7th March 2016.

Please find below the three key messages:

The Forum heard presentations from the
Cabinet Office on the Cutting Red Tape Review on Adult Social Care Here

****

CSSIW gave a presentation on lessons to be learned for the Operation Jasmine investigation in South Wales.  Margaret Flynn’s review In Search of Accountability is publicly available.  ( added by NASHiCS only – Margaret has agreed to present at our Forum in Lincoln on the 13th Sept )

****

Members agreed that it would be appropriate to conduct a major stocktake of this Forum’s future and leadership at the next meeting in the light of: the new work-streams (and possibly new fora) that will emerge from the DH/DCLG Action Plan; interest in creating a similar forum in Scotland, and a review of the products of the three SCPF Working Groups.
