Outcomes Matter: Effective commissioning in domiciliary care, Summary Report

A recent LGiU survey of social care departments showed that three quarters of respondents disagreed with the statement ‘our current systems will be sufficient to manage our adult social care provision in future’. Of particular concern was a ‘time-task’ culture of service delivery. With growing pressure on adult social care resources, the goal of promoting efficient, outcome-focuse services has never been more important. Outcomes Matter, an LGiU report supported by homecare provider Mears, sets out to investigate the issue.
