answer text <p>We recognise that drinking alcohol and drug use does place significant strain on the National Health Service, but there are both ethical and practical reasons not to seek payment from patients. The founding principle of the NHS is that services are free of charge, available to all on the basis of need, not ability to pay. It is funded accordingly, from general taxation.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Charging for Residential Accommodation Guidelines (CRAG) supports local authorities to interpret the National Assistance (Assessment of Resources) Regulations 1992. This guidance and the regulations will be repealed from April 2015 when new provisions under the Care Act 2014 come into force.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The new charging framework introduces minimal changes in order to respond to the call for continuity and to enable local authorities to focus on preparing for implementation of the reforms recommended by the independent Commission on Funding Reform that the Care Act will also introduce. From April 2016 this will see the introduction of a cap on care costs that will protect people from the risk of catastrophic costs and an extension to the point at which means tested support becomes available. As the published impact assessment shows, this means that up to 100,000 more people will be better off by 2024-25. We are in the process of updating the modelling and will publish a revised impact assessment shortly. In addition, from April 2015 we are introducing a universal deferred payment agreement scheme that means people should not be forced to sell their home in their lifetime to pay for care.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The police are often the first service called on to respond to vulnerable people suffering from a mental health crisis, but they are not best-placed to provide the care such vulnerable people need. The Crisis Care Concordat and the introduction of street triage and Liaison and Diversion pilots are some examples of the way we are improving the response that people suffering from mental health problems receive from the police, and vitally, their healthcare partners.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
