In 2006, The King's Fund published Securing good care for older people: taking a long-term viewfollowing a review of social care funding in England led by Sir Derek Wanless. This proposed a 'partnership model' under which responsibility for the costs of social care would be shared between the individual and the state. In March 2010, we published Securing good care for more people: Options for reform which updated the 2006 report and set out a revised version of the partnership model.
The King's Fund is a charity that seeks to understand how the health system in England can be improved. Using that insight, we help to shape policy, transform services and bring about behaviour change. Our work includes research, analysis, leadership development and service improvement. We also offer a wide range of resources to help everyone working in health to share knowledge, learning and ideas.
