It indicates a “practical and effective” model for service transformation and resource organisation across municipality and also the NHS, which “could help bridge multi-billion pound funding gaps and unlock wider possibilities for public sector reforms”.
This ought to be replicated at local levels with single commissioning government bodies covering both local authority and health services.
Review, titled Breaking Obstacles: Creating a sustainable future for health insurance and social care, recommends the development of a brand new Department for Towns and Wellbeing to handle a built-in health insurance and social care budget. This could enable Cabinet-level collaboration by using “shared funding plans included in a typical pooled source of health insurance and social care”.
Patel added: “Extreme financial demands are now being introduced to deal with on health insurance and social care funding for that NHS and municipality – among ever-growing demographic demand and also the pressing strictures from the NHS 5 Year Forward View.
It concentrates on ‘breaking down’ inter-departmental limitations, optimising health estates, and assesses the outcome of elevated devolution to local government bodies.
“To have hope of surmounting the task, we want new methods for delivering public services which are collaborative, integrated and innovative and that offer realistic, practical and replicable solutions.”
The proper review, printed today was brought with a panel composed of former municipality secretary Hazel Blears, former chair from the Mental Health Act Commission Lord Patel and mental health specialist and investigator Dr Jonathan Bashford.
