Carol Runciman praises staff for improvements in adult social care outcomes

November 6, 2017 1:53 PM

Data released by NHS England has shown significant improvements in the performance rating of adult social care outcomes in the past year.

York is ranked as 42nd of the 152 local authorities in England, a rise of 81 places from last year when the city was ranked 123rd with York the most improved nationally.

York was considered a top performer in areas including:

  • Social care quality of life
  • People getting self-directed support
  • Carer-reported quality of life
  • Social care users having as much contact as they would like
  • Carers having as much contact as they would like
  • Carers reporting that they involved in discussions about those cared-for
  • Carers finding it easy to find information and advice
  • Social care users feeling safe and secure as a result of services provided

The Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework report also suggested areas for further improvements including direct payments and people being offered reablement services after leaving hospital.

Councillor Carol Runciman, Executive Member for Health and Adult Social Care said:

"It is pleasing that these figures have acknowledged the considerable work done over the past year to improve adult social care outcomes for our residents.

"Whilst these figures are positive we still recognise there is more to be done, but the news shows that we are heading in the right direction.

"Thank you to all our incredible staff and efforts and support from partners, who have worked hard to make this progress possible."
