The article offers the author's views on move of Health Secretary Andy Burnham in Great Britain in publishing the government's Green Paper for social care of elderly people in 2009. She states that there were three proposals cited in the paper including partnership, which she considered as incorrect timing. She cites that the only thing that is certain is requirement for high level financial advice from consumers who made payments for their health care.
