CASCAIDr

Message received from Belinda Schwehr (27.03.2020) and posted to the  CASCAIDr website(CASCAIDr = the Centre for Adults’ Social Care – Advice, Information and Dispute Resolution)

27th March: CASCAIDr – the All Adults’ care and health specialist legal advice charity – is going into a different mode for the duration of the Coronavirus crisis.

25th March: Keeping calm about the Care Act, during the crisis 

20th March: Initial reaction to the legislation: “The government’s ‘emergency powers’ Bill, as it affects the Care Act…  The provisions of the emergency Coronavirus Bill suspend the duties in the Care Act, downgrading them all into powers – other than in the one situation where meeting needs is necessary to avoid a breach of human rights.   All the Assessment, Eligibility, Care Planning and Review duties for service users and carers are suspended, and these duties are downgraded into powers only. That’s not to say they won’t be operated but it will be according to whatever strategy the local ASC team develops for prioritising.  Carers already weighted down with the stress of coping with the requirements of the government will have no practicable way of saying No to requests for even more help than has already been squeezed from them.  Protection from financial liability for breach of statutory duty, both from BEFORE the Bill becomes law, for an unlimited period, and also going forwards, given the difficulty of returning to normal, even when the worst is over, is provided for. This Bill means that care providers will have no leverage at all in relation to protecting legitimate business interests by setting a fee that compensates them for the risk they take, even after a period of intense contribution in the national interest”.
