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.

  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.
