Treasury set to target dignity

    The Treasury is expected to set the Department of Health a target
    to promote the independence and dignity of older people when it
    publishes the next set of public service agreements next
    month.

    Older people’s tsar Ian Philp is believed to be pushing for the new
    target, which would be a significant departure from the normal
    focus on more measurable goals, such as reduced waiting lists.

    Association of Directors of Social Services president Andrew Cozens
    said he “very strongly hoped” there was something in the DoH’s PSA
    that related directly to the social care sector.
