Report of the Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England (Barker report)



This briefing summarises and comments on the report of the Barker Commission established by the King’s Fund to look at the future of health and social care in England. The Commission, whose members included a senior officer of the LGA, has made radical recommendations for raising additional funding for public provision for an integrated system of health and social care, commissioned by a single commissioner. The report suggests that Health and Wellbeing Boards might be the single local commissioner of services.

It will be of interest to lead members for adult social care and children’s services, council leaders, members of Health and Wellbeing Boards, members of health scrutiny committees, Chief Executives, Directors of adult social care and children’s services and their teams.
