Adult social care reform

In advance of a roundtable on 'Putting human rights at the centre of transformation,' Age NI and Law Centre welcomed the decision by the Department of Health to publish the report of the Expert Panel on Adult Care and Support.

Law Centre NI Director Ursula O’Hare, added:

'Social care should always be responsive to the broad spectrum of peoples needs. We welcome the publication of the Expert Advisory Panel Report as a driver to put social care at the front and centre of the policy agenda.

'Putting people at the heart of social care reform will support the rights-based approach that is needed for the delivery of adult social care. Throughout a transformation process, it will be critically important that people continue to be able to access expert independent advice so that they are empowered to understand and secure their legal rights.'

Pictured above at the roundtable on 11 December 2017 are, L-R: Duane Farrell, Age NI; Jillian Martin, Department of Health, Office of Social Services; Seamus McErlean, Health and Social care Board; Eleanor Ross, Public Health Authority; Ursula O'Hare, Director Law Centre NI and Colum Conway, NI Social Care Council.
