NICE Guideline NG86 - People's experience in adult social care services: improving the experience of care and support for people using adult social care services

Under the Care Act 2014, local authorities must carry out an assessment of anyone who appears to require care and support. The aim of assessment is to understand the person's needs and goals. After carrying out the assessment, the local authority consider whether any of the needs identified are eligible for support.
