Care.data: A missed opportunity

Description
In all the many important discussions about data security in the context of the Care.data project, other concerns, such as the marketisation of the research agenda and the resulting influence over which public health issues are highlighted, are often ignored.

The average age that women give birth to their first child has been rising since the 1970s in England and Wales. It was 23.4 in 1969 and by 2012 that average stood at 28.1 years. The data are of course more interesting and complicated than an average figure suggests.

Description
Although adult social care works with some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people in society, for various reasons mainstream services don't always get it right for people. That's why there are different forms and sources of care and support developing outside the mainstream.

Integrated Care: an impossible dream?

Description
For those of us who have worked, researched and led integrated care it is undoubtedly rewarding to see its importance being so recognised, promoted and supported. Whilst integration (or in other guises such as partnership, joint working or collaboration) is not a new policy intent as such, there was a time in which it appeared to be falling out of favour in the current reforms.
