ECCA LOBBIES CSCI OVER COUNCIL STAFF SKILLS

Care home leaders have called on adult social services departments to be better skilled at working with the independent sector.

The English Community Care Association (ECCA) made the call in its response to the Commission for Social Care Inspection's consultation on A New Outcomes Framework for Performance Assessment of Adult Social Care.

It said that there should be no push, overt or covert, either towards admitting people to council run services rather than independent services, or forcing people to move from one care environment to another solely based on financial reasons.

Martin Green, chief executive of ECCA, added: 'If as a result of poor council practice, care homes deliver poor care, the council must take its share of the responsibility for this. It is essential that performance frameworks for councils marry up with that of providers. ECCA reiterates its call for an independent review of the cost of care in every local authority.'
