The Care Act 2014 contains provisions relating to adult care and support and health. Part 1 of the Act is intended to give effect to the policies requiring primary legislation that were set out in the White Paper Caring for our future: reforming care and support (Cm 8378, July 2012, ISBN 9780101837828), to implement the changes put forward by the Commission on the Funding of Care and Support (2011, ISBN 9780108510847), chaired by Andrew Dilnot, and to meet the recommendations of the Law Commission in its report on Adult Social Care (Law Com 326, HC 941, May 2011, ISBN 9780102971682) to consolidate and modernise existing care and support law. Part 2 of the Act also gives effect to elements of the Government's response to the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry that require primary legislation. Part 3 of the Act makes changes to the Trust Special Administration regime. It also takes forward the necessary legislative measures for the establishment of Health Education England and the Health Research Authority as non-departmental public bodies. Part 4 of the Act establishes a fund for the integration of care and support with health services, to be known as the Better Care Fund and makes provision for additional safeguards around the general dissemination of health and care information.
