Identifying a fairer system for funding adult social care

Justin Keen and David Bell

Can we create a fairer adult social care system?

The recent Green Paper shows that the Government has moved on from previous statements on adult social care – but it still lacks important detail, particularly on funding options.

In this Viewpoint, Justin Keen (Professor of Health Politics) and David Bell (Professor of Economics) evaluate the Paper and ask the following questions:

  • Is the Government taking steps to ensure that arrangements for the care and support of older people are fair?
  • Is the Green Paper detailed enough to determine whether people on different incomes may 'win' or 'lose' under any new set of proposals?
