Future Care Capital Annual Report 2016/17 – Redefining the future of health and care provision
This year’s annual report reflects an exciting and fast-paced time for the organisation, seeing Future Care Capital (FCC) move from a start-up into a newly established national health and social care charity.
A new settlement for the health and care provision is one of the most important domestic policy challenges in recent decades. FCC is at the heart of the debate, delivering a new, clear vision for health and care that meets the growing demand within the country.
FCC focused much of the year building its policy and advocacy team, so that the charity could start putting forward practical policy solutions to address some of the biggest challenges faced by our ageing population. Several of the charity’s policy recommendations focused around health and care data that have captured the interest of the wider sector and Whitehall.
During the financial year Future Care Capital published:
Vision 2030 – which sets out ideas for the future of health and care services. A key focus for FCC is to support the unification of health and social care provision.
Intelligent sharing: unleashing the potential of health and care data – a report examining how the UK could support data-driven research and innovation to transform health and social care.
More progress was also made to establish FCC’s Innovation Fund, the charity’s second core collaborative, but independent, delivery vehicle. The fund will be an opportunity to lead the sector in funding new health and care innovation and to address a gap in the market for non-clinical health and care ventures at seed funding stage. It will aim to support the development of such innovation to scale up investments with a goal of significant societal impact.
Joel Charles, Deputy Chief Executive of Future Care Capital, said:
“Future Care Capital aims to challenge existing assumptions about health and adult social care, and come up with an alternative positive vision. We have set out the potential building blocks for unifying health and adult social care provision, but this is only the beginning of the journey as we embark on how best to deliver a new long-term settlement.
“Harnessing the momentum gained during the last financial year, we plan to launch our Innovation Fund and publish policy to directly influence the government’s forthcoming adult social care consultation. The government must deliver a new long-term plan to address the growing demands of our ageing population.
“We are not complacent about the scale of this challenge and look forward to advancing the principles underpinning our vision for health and adult social care provision in the year ahead.”
