The Care Bill was introduced into Parliament on 9 May 2013, and published on 10 May 2013. Factsheets have been produced to accompany the Bill.
This factsheet describes how the Care Bill will facilitate a Better Care Fund to promote closer working between the NHS and Care and Support.
In June, as part of the Spending Round, a £3.8bn pooled fund was announced to promote joint working between the health service, and care and support in 2015/16. The Better Care Fund includes existing NHS and social care funding, which will now be jointly invested as the biggest ever financial incentive for health and social care to work together and improve outcomes for people.
