Minister for health and social services Brian Gibbons said:
Acting chief social services inspector Richard Tebboth commented: 'The council has already acted on findings of this report and continues to implement its recommendations. We will follow up progress through our annual performance evaluation and other monitoring.'
The review report found much to commend but there are a number of organisational issues for the authority to consider. They include engaging staff more effectively in change and obtaining a balance between the preventative agenda required by the older people's strategy and supporting very vulnerable older people effectively. The City and County of Swansea has agreed a plan to carry out the priority actions listed in the review report and has already undertaken a number of measures to create improvements.
