PRSB responds to The Paterson Inquiry recommendations 2021

The government have accepted the recommendations of the Paterson Inquiry following the actions of former surgeon, Ian Paterson, who was sentenced to 20 years in jail after performing unsafe and sometimes unnecessary operations on hundreds of women.

PRSB responds to the 'People at the Heart of Care: adult social care reform white paper'

The PRSB welcomes the Government’s pledge in the new White Paper for adult social care to speed up adoption of digital tools and make better use of data to promote safe, sustainable, high quality social care. ‘People at the Heart of Care’ commits to £150 million new funds for technology; it recognises the role of information standards for advancing interoperability across social care, sees the importance of linking health service and local authority data and promises that 80% of social care providers will have a digital care record in place that can connect to a shared care record by 2024. Its proposed digital hub and skills passport for staff is a welcome idea.
