How prepared are you for aspects of the Care Act 2014?

We asked 100 local health leaders how prepared they were for aspects of the

Care Act 2014 (See figure 1). The survey revealed a significant percentage of

local authorities were unprepared for capping individuals' costs (62 per cent),

considering the provision for and advice on top ups (65 per cent) and the provision

of assessments (38 per cent). It should be borne in mind that aspects for which the

local authorities are least prepared are last to be implemented.
