- The King's Fund commissioned a fundamental review into the long-term demand for and supply of social care for older people in England in January 2005. This is being led by former NatWest Group chief executive Sir Derek Wanless, and follows the two independent reviews that Sir Derek conducted for the government on future health care spending in the United Kingdom and on public health in England. Sir Derek is expected to report back in March.
