Local authorities commission care and support services and have a new responsibility to protect and improve health and wellbeing. They use their knowledge of their communities to tackle challenges such as smoking, alcohol and drug misuse and obesity. Working together with health and care providers, community groups and other agencies, they prevent ill health by encouraging people to live healthier lives.
Locally, clinical commissioning groups – made up of doctors, nurses and other professionals – will buy services for patients, while local councils formally take on their new roles in promoting public health. Health and wellbeing boards will bring together local organisations to work in partnership.
Care Skills Register will work with Local Authorities (LA), Care Commissioning Groups (CCG) to ensure that a high quality of care is being offered to service users. The Register will give the LAs and CCGs the visibility of all Care Providers working with them and they can have period compliance reports to ensure all the Care Providers are compliant .
The Register brings more freedom for those who plan, commission and provide services by providing monitoring information about care providers and safeguard the interests of patients and the wider public. The Care Skills Register protects and promotes the interests of people using health services by making sure that Care providers, commissioning groups, regulators, service users and their relatives have access to up to date information.
