  • There is increasing public concern about the availability, quality and appropriateness of care services for London's diverse older population. In February 2004, the King's Fund launched an inquiry to investigate whether the care market was working for older people in London and if there would be enough care services of the right quality for them in the future. This interim report sets out early findings from the opinions expressed and information submitted to the inquiry between March and September 2004. Major concerns identified from this evidence include: limited choice for service users, service shortages, staffing shortages, poor quality of some services, funding pressures and weak collaboration across London boroughs. The full report will be published in summer 2005. [Overview abbreviated]
