Social care green paper delayed again

  • Comment

The adult social care green paper has been delayed again and will now be published next year, the government has confirmed.

A spokesperson for Department of Health & Social Care told LGC proposals will be published at the first opportunity in 2019.

The green paper including options for future funding was announced by chancellor Philip Hammond in the 2017 March Budget and planned for the following autumn.

In November last year, the government said it intended to publish the document in the summer. This deadline slipped to the autumn before the postponement to next year.

The government has made a series of funding pledges since the announcement of the green paper, most recently an additional £240m announced in October for 2018-19.
