Ten questions to ask if you are scrutinising the transformation of Adult Social Care
This guide identifies key elements in the adult social care transformation programme that will allow scrutiny committees to assess the extent to which their local authority is planning and delivering better social care
Adult social care is undergoing major changes to transform the way services are designed and delivered. This guide aims to enable overview and scrutiny committees to consider the whole process of reform, to see how the elements fit together and how they impact on each other and the wider provision of social care and health. The guide will also be of interest to other councillors, including the executive lead for adult social care, to local authority officers and to organisations such as local involvement networks (LINks)
The 'Ten Questions' guide is a companion publication to 'Scrutinising the Transformation of Adult Social Care: Practice Guide' which provides more information about the wider social care agenda and guidance for scrutiny committees undertaking in-depth reviews. Both guides were produced by CfPS for IDeA, the Improvement and Development Agency for local government.
