1. Richard Jones, Executive Director for Adult and Community Services, Lancashire County Council, considers the lessons the NHS can learn from social care as it rolls out personal health budgets and discusses the need for effective integration of both health and social care systems in this process.

    Richard Jones spoke at the Nuffield Trust seminar: Where do personal health budgets fit in the new commissioning landscape? in May 2012.

  2. This short film explains why personalisation is often making life harder for social workers. It proposes that, instead of relegating social workers to minor roles, they are given the chance to use the best of their skills and focus their efforts where they are most needed. This means abandoning the older system of care management and develop a new script for social work.

  3. Most countries are facing similar challenges with regard to ageing populations and financial pressures on social care. The need to address major deficits in adult social care policy in Northern Ireland has been recognised and there is an expressed commitment to addressing the over-reliance on residential care and support independent living. This seminar highlights the conclusions that can be drawn from research evidence both within the UK and more widely and how this knowledge can be used to inform decision making. There will be a particular focus on the personalisation agenda.

  4. The NHS will be 65 years old on 5 July. In that time, our health system has undergone profound change, with the recent Health and Social Care Act introducing the most wide-ranging reforms since the NHS was founded in 1948.

    Watch and listen to our brand new animation, which gives a whistle-stop tour of where the NHS is now - how the new organisations work and fit together - and explains that our new system is as much a product of politics and circumstance as design.

    We hope you like the animation, share it, and visit our more in-depth web resources for more insight and analysis of the health system - 65 years on.
