The social care system is widely seen as failing and it has long been clear that fundamental and lasting reform is necessary.  Reform is made all the more urgent as an ageing population will mean rising demand for care and support. Projected changes in demographics, availability of support from carers, unit costs of care and other factors indicate that social care in its current form will struggle to meet people's needs. Longer life need not mean more time spent in ill health. Improving public health and developing interventions for long-term conditions could pay major dividends. The old-age "support ratio" (the relative numbers of working-age and older people) is not the most important factor in the likely future affordability of social care. Our society must not underestimate its ability to become more productive and wealthier, nor the contribution that older people will make to that. In this report the Health Committee looks at: the present social care system; meeting future demand and costs; shortcomings of the present social care system; plans for reform; achieving lasting reform; and, the way forward.

The Health Committee gives its view on the principal recommendations of the report of the public inquiry into the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust undertaken by Robert Francis QC. The Committee considers the need for an open and transparent NHS, and comments on Robert Francis' recommendations for imposition of a statutory obligation to observe a duty of candour; for all directors of healthcare organisations to be truthful in any information given to a healthcare regulator or commissioner; and that it should be made a criminal offence for any registered medical practitioner, nurse, allied health professional or director of an authorised or registered healthcare organisation to provide informaton that knowingly misleads or is dishonest to patients, nearest relatives, regulator or commissioner (i.e. the Care Quality Commission, CQC)). The Committee discusses concerns about whistleblowers and compromise agreements at the CQC; also the case of Gary Walker, formerly Chief Executive of United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, who had been prevented from discussing public issues relating to patient safety. Other sections of the report consider the NHS and its patients; nursing healthcare assistant staff and the NHS; and the future of regulation, including the role of the CQC and a Chief Inspector of Hospitals, and death certificate reform. Robert Francis recommended that the Committee should, through its programme of regular accountability hearings, monitor the implementation of his recommendations and the development of cultural change in the NHS. Legislation proposed by the Government in response to certain of his recommendations is contained in Part 2 of the Care Bill The Committee recommends that the Government respond to its report in good time for the response to be discussed at that Bill’s Second Reading in the House of Commons.
