DH White Paper - Building the National Care Service

Housing LIN Briefing No34 - Further to the Green Paper on the future of care and support in England, the government published its White Paper, Building the National Care Service on 30th March 2010. It seeks to establish a National Care Service and places significant focus on greater integration, partnership working and collaboration within health and social care economies.

There are also several references in the White Paper to the critical links between health, housing and social care and this briefing looks at those links.
