Social Care: in the round and square c/o King's Fund

Simon Bottery's Long Read -

What’s your problem, social care? The eight key areas for reform

- and listed below, have been mapped to Hodges' model. The full article and comments are well worth reading and may help readers discern the relationships between the key areas identified.
  1. Means testing: it’s not like the NHS 
  2. Catastrophic costs: selling homes to pay for care 
  3. Unmet need: people going without the care and support they need 
  4. Quality of care: 15-minute care visits and neglect 
  5. Workforce pay and conditions: underpaid, overworked staff 
  6. Market fragility: care home companies going out of business 
  7. Disjointed care: delayed transfers of care and lack of integration with health 
  8. The postcode lottery: unwarranted variation in access and performance

I have associated each with the respective knowledge (care) domain in which they are placed:

humanistic ----------------------------------------------- mechanistic
group - population
1. Parity of Esteem in Means Testing
2. (Catastrophic) Cost to me, anxiety, depression, stress
3. Unmet need (mental health, counselling ...)
4. Quality of Care (Mental Health, Well-Being..)
5. Workforce (values, person-centred, self-esteem, job-well-done, BE the Difference?)
6. Market fragility (attractiveness as career pathway, having a leader)
7. Disjointed care (number of carers, lived experience...)
8. Postcode (I thought this had been addressed?)
(postcode? - a remote 'thing' outside through the window and (summer) garden]

1. Parity of Esteem in Means Testing
2. (Catastrophic) Cost to NHS - innovation, change, prevention, transformation
3. Unmet need (physical, access ...)
4. Quality of Care (Time, Logistics)
5. Workforce (tasks, scheduling, physically reasonable?)
6. Market fragility (scale, bed occupancy, local demographics...)
7. Disjointed care (geography, transfers, A&E admissions...)
8. Postcode ('literally') North, West, East, South,
Regions, London, Urban, Rural ...

1. What is your
Parity across

2. (Catastrophic) Cost to my family.
3. Unmet need (socialising, access, carer ..)
4. Quality of Care (Relationships, Belonging, Communication, Family Groups..)
5. Workforce (job satisfaction, status, social worth ..)
6. Market fragility (Public perception, marketing, negativity bias - local news, time for outreach, intergenerational engagement...)
7. Disjointed care (input of family, local provisions, self-funding - budgets...)
8. Postcode (pre-social care, pre-lottery?)

Means (let's Test that.)
here too?

 2. (Catastrophic) Cost to the State?
3. Unmet need (my choices, informal carer ...)
 4. Quality of Care (Value for £, Measures, Inspection, safety..)
5. Workforce (pay and conditions, minimum wage?, Unions, contracts, training, BREXIT ..)
6. Market fragility (FUNDING settlements, estate, investment, staff turnover, Qualified staff, commercial history, profit, governance..)
7. Disjointed care (commissioning, ...)
8. Postcode (local policy, funding, protocols ..)
