The Better Care Fund was introduced by the Government from 1st April 2015 consolidating a number of previous funding streams into one pooled fund which is now hosted by the ICB. This fund includes monies for the protection of adult social care. The expectations of the Government of having a Better Care Fund are to promote better integration of health and social services for individuals and in 2022/3 there was a requirement to deliver the following policy benefits:
· To enable people to stay well, safe and independent at home for longer
· To provide the right care in the right place at the right time.
