Long term care needs reform. The major parties all agree that the current system is outdated and unsustainable. They also recognise that an ageing population and changes in morbidity mean the cost of care will continue to rise. The reliance on public funding must fall and recipients must fund more of the cost of services through direct charges and payments. This summit provided the chance to hear the views of nine speakers on funding long term care and, in turn, provided them with the opportunity to receive questions from a range of delegates. A booklet containing short think pieces was published with the summit. Presentations and questions and answers during the day were recorded. This report contains a copy of the agenda of the event, the booklet that accompanied it and the transcript of the discussions.
