Report: Commissioning community care services for older people

June 10, 2004 by Auditor General, Accounts Commission

This report looks at the way in which councils plan, purchase and review their older people's services. It also looks at implementation of national policy by councils and their health partners. It concludes that councils and their health partners should redouble their efforts to ensure there are sufficient services to meet the future needs of Scotland's ageing population. In addition the Scottish Executive should monitor whether its policies are being effectively delivered and ensure that information is available and used to plan for the future.
