The Care Act 2014 represents a major upheaval in adult social care law: the biggest since 1948. This book sets out and explains the provisions of the Care Act 2014 in simple terms, illustrating its practical implications for both social and health care with many legal cases and local ombudsman investigations. It also includes a substantial section on NHS Continuing Health Care and how it relates to the Care Act.

Presented in a handy A - Z format, Michael Mandelstam brings his extensive experience in this field to bear on this new, important piece of legislation. It is essential reading for health and social care managers and practitioners, advocates, lawyers, policy makers and students of social work and social policy.
