The NHS and the challenges it faces filled our newsfeeds in 2023. But despite the lengthy waiting times and unprecedented staff strikes, a radical shift in care practices is breaking through. Initially necessitated by Covid-19, virtual wards have become a quietly growing part of the NHS, which recently met its ambitious target of creating 10,000 virtual beds before winter.

Following the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care’s commitment to publish a major conditions strategy, this government report sets out the case for change and strategic framework for the final strategy.
The economic case for further investment in social care is clear and compelling. Serious issues creating the current crisis in the social care sector have been well set out in recent years. Low pay and lack of training or a career in care continue to undermine the workforce leading to high turnover and vacancy levels that leave needs unmet, create costs for employers and fuel demand for unpaid carers. The inadequate level of care further hinders the economy at a time when buoyancy is sorely needed. Without further investment in the social care sector, the government’s aims of improving growth and productivity cannot be realised.
Intermediate care framework for rehabilitation, reablement and recovery following hospital discharge
Enabling people to stay well, safe and independent at home for longer has been a long-standing policy objective of the NHS. National guidance on intermediate care was issued in 2009 and this framework builds on the work that has taken place so far to provide a renewed focus.
Whether we realise it or not, adult social care affects all of us. At some point in our lives, we will rely on some form of long-term support whether from a family member, loved one, or carer. A strong adult social care system is the cornerstone of a successful economy and healthy society. Its future needs to be secured and protected.
When trying to envision the future of the health and care system in England, the difficult question to answer is not ‘What do we do?’ – the vision for care has been outlined by multiple governments in countless policy documents – but ‘How do we actually make it happen?’
