Key points and recommendations are followed by an introduction, a description of the state of the debate at the end of 2008, and detailed discussion of three questions: What more do we need to do to make our vision of independence, choice and control a reality?; What should the balance of responsibility be between the family, the individual and the government; and Should the system be the same for everybody or should we consider varying the ways we allocate government funding according to certain principles?

Range and Capacity Review Group: second report: the future care of older people in Scotland

This is the second and final report from the Scottish Executive Health Department’s Range and Capacity Review Group The National Delayed Discharge Action Plan (March 2002) highlighted the need to carry out a range and capacity review of community care services for older people, and led to the establishment of this Range and Capacity Review Group. The first report of the Group Projections of community care service users, workforce and costs was published on 16 July 2004. This was modelling work that presented 7 scenarios and then, for each of these scenarios, set out statistical projections of the numbers of community care service users and of workforce and cost implications at a Scotland level up to 2019. It did not set the context for care, nor did it make recommendations about the way forward. These matters are addressed in this report. This report does not provide, as some might have expected, a detailed analysis of the different models that were outlined in the Group’s first report. As the work progressed it quickly became apparent that the national review group could not decide what should happen at local level. Of the scenarios in the first report, scenario 7 (the joint future model) is the one that fits best with the direction of policy and practice in Scotland. But the way in which a joint future model is delivered in one area will be different from that in another area, because of the mix of existing services (and their inter-action, of which more is said later about a whole systems approach), and the local population and geography. This report therefore sets out: the group's understanding of the big problems, the context in the light of recent, major reports (notably Building a Health Service Fit for the Future (the Kerr Report), Delivering for Health, Better Outcomes for Older People, and the 21st Century Social Work Review), and a vision for care for the increasing ageing population in years to come. The report is therefore neither an action plan nor a model of care, but it sets out principles, a vision for care that has to be worked out in detail at local level.
