The review, which will be conducted over a three month period, could recommend structural changes and moves to reduce current overlaps between the three organisations, while also inspecting the combined £95m funding that the bodies currently receive to develop the adult care sector and workforce.
All three bodies welcome the review. GSCC chief executive Mike Wardle said:
“effective workforce regulation” was needed to ensure adult care staff could deliver on personalisation, and this would become important as more groups were registered.
Jenny Owen vice-president of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services also encouraged the review but warned the Department of Health against cutting its overall spend on the organisations.
