The article presents information on some important proposals related to the implementation of long term care in Great Britain. One of them is the government's plan to meet 25%-33% of personal care costs of all users with eligible needs. Another proposal is that low income group will have a greater proportion funded up to 100%. Yet another key proposal is the setting up of an independent body to assess cost-effectiveness of adult care interventions.
