Proposed drivers

New Policy Briefing

Proposed hot topics:


State of Care 2017/8
Care Quality Commission (CQC); 2018.
[State of Care is our annual assessment of health and social care in England. The report looks at the trends, shares examples of good and outstanding care, and highlights where care needs to improve. We found that people’s experiences of care often depend on how well local systems work together where they live. This builds on what we saw in Beyond barriers, our report looking at how services work together to support and care for people aged 65 and over. ] (TP)

Directions for integrated care providers (ICPs)
Department of Health and Social Care; 2018.
[This consultation is aimed at GPs and others involved in the provision of primary medical services. It set outs the draft directions for those providing primary care as part of an ICP and asks if the draft provisions for a new ICP contract are effective and sufficient, and whether there are any other impacts the government should be aware of.] (VT)

  • Quality Framework HEE – we have the quality strategy added, but not the framework and this is relevant to libraries as we are included in the review documentation (TP)

Suggestions provided by Helen Swales following completion of survey, it’s a long list so we will need to review and be selective – duplicates removed 5th Sept 2017 Helen Swales recommendations

To watch out for

  • Facing the facts, shaping the future: a draft health and care workforce strategy for England to 2027 This is a draft strategy, not added at this stage – watch out for it and add later in the year.
