Your Opinion Matters
A public consultation is being carried out to help the Department of Health
to develop plans for a new statutory scheme for home care services.

They  would like to find out what people think about current home care services– what is working well and what needs to be improved and to hear the public’s views on what the future scheme should look like.

These findings will help the Department to develop the new home care scheme. This stage of the consultation is particularly aimed at people who use homecare services, their families and the general public.
