Common Assessment Framework for Adults: a translation

The Department of Health has star­ted a consulta­tion on how we’re going to work out what people need when they go into health or social care, such as a home for the elderly, assisted living programmes, long term illness, that sort of thing. If you are a carer, you work in social care, or you cared for by the health or social care services, it’s in your interests to read and reply to this consultation.

To start you off, I’d like you to read my unof­fi­cial trans­la­tion! It’s eight pages long, so a lot less weighty to read, and hope­fully contains inform­a­tion you can use to either reply to the consulta­tion directly, or to help you under­stand the offi­cial line.

As always, if there’s anything you don’t get, or anything I’ve got wrong, let me know through comments or email. I under­stand some people have had prob­lems with my using ScribD so if you do, down­load my Common Assessment Framework for Adults — a trans­la­tion directly.

You might find my guide on how to have your say through consulta­tions useful as well.

The follow­ing two tabs change content below.

  1. Nice and concise — thank you :)I think my main concern with this, as everything, is the secur­ity of all this import­ant data float­ing around. The system has provisos for ensur­ing that only the right care agen­cies see the data, but the larger it gets, the greater the risk of it being the target of attacks.
