Health and social care plan - "Build back better"
The government recognises that the social care system could work better for people using it and those caring for others. It has committed through "Build back better" to reform the adult social care system in England to meet the increasingly complex needs of people.
This health and social care plan will include a funding package to support the UK's health and social care system and support people to live more independent, healthier lives for longer.
The government has set out details of this package in the "Build back better" plan for healthcare, adult social care in England and funding. We will provide updates as soon as it becomes available.
The content of this page is currently under review. The government has announced that the adult social care charging reform is delayed until 2025. Other reforms to social care outlined in the white paper, People at the Heart of Care, are continuing.
