DH unveils new care support finance plans

15th October 2010

The Department of Health (DH) is reallocating four million pounds of funding into various training projects for health and social care workers, following the recent cancellation of the Caring with Confidence contract.

Under the government plans, a range of new projects to improve care standards are to be introduced, including a support scheme involving voluntary organisations and the addition of 200 training places with the Royal College of GPs.

In addition, 500,000 pounds will be provided to bodies such as the Princess Royal Trust for Carers and Crossroads Care, in order to support various initiatives.

This comes after the carer training contract with Caring with Confidence was axed over concerns that it was not providing sufficient value for money.

Care services minister Paul Burstow said: "Identifying and supporting carers at an early stage is critical. The financial outlook is extremely challenging so we must make sure the money we have is working harder for us."

Earlier this month, the DH revealed that a total of 70 million pounds is to be allocated to the NHS in order to provide post-hospital care support for patients.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800119242-ADNFCR
