Excellent rating for Cambridgeshire adult services

Great to see some good news. Adult services is a large part of the County Councils budget and is under huge pressure to stay within the reduced budget. But ……. we are all getting older and there are more of us.

A care watchdog looking at adult social services in Cambridgeshire assessed two out of seven categories as “excellent”.

The high scorers were improvements to quality of life and helping people “make a positive contribution”.

Health, choice and control, freedom from discrimination and harassment, economic well-being, dignity and respect all “performed well”.

The Care Quality Commission, assessing the service, praised its ability to perform well under budget pressure.

The annual assessment report into Cambridgeshire County Council noted the increased numbers of adults needing social care.
