Elderly care pathways approved

1st April 2011

Plans have been signed off by NHS East of England to approve pathways for elderly care patients.

These plans will give private companies, health service providers or trusts a set pot of funds in order to create an "incentive" to drive up profits by giving lower cost care to elderly patients and people with respiratory and musculoskeletal problems. The King’s Fund said recently that pathways should be given to "external providers" (including private companies) and said GPs are not able to implement the changes to services set out by the the government's planned reforms to the NHS.
