The independent sector

  • Bridgit Dimond


One of the key objectives of the white paper Caring for People was ‘to promote the development of a flourishing independent sector alongside good quality public services’. The statutory mechanism to enable this development to take place for both health authorities and local social services authorities is contained in section 23 and sections 28, 28A and 28B of the National Health Service Act 1977 and in sections 21, 22 and 30 of the National Assistance Act 1948 and subsequent legislation.
