COSLA comment on care visits

A COSLA Spokesperson said: "We would not take a view on the merit of 15 minute visits in isolation because they can be an important part of a wider package of care. Furthermore, the context is important in that council budgets are under huge pressure and demand for adult social care is steadily on the rise.

"Most importantly, services should be commissioned on a person-centred basis with  a focus on outcomes. Focusing on one element of care might not always tell the full story."
