The article reports on the warnings given by the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) to the councils to make progress in giving personalization for people with multiple and complex needs. CSCI notes that while defeating cultural barriers to the use of personal budgets for this group, authority has to improve partnership and delegation. CSCI contends that out-of-area placement was made for negative reasons and providers were not engaged in developing personalization strategies.
