Paying for social care: Beyond Dilnot discusses the history of social care reform and considers the present and future funding pressures on the system. The paper calls for health and social care services to be considered as a single system with a new framework being put in place for planning and cost-sharing. It suggests health and wellbeing boards should play a key role in ensuring that care reform is part of wider transformation of local health and care services.
