The purpose of the meeting was to scope out immediate concerns or actions, and to begin to think through the longer term implications. The results have been summarised by the National Care Forum in a set of slides which are available on the NCF website.

The presentation was drawn together to draw out some of the immediate and longer term implications of the UK vote to leave the European Union on adult social care provision, and can be re-used by social care organisations.
