The draft report set out ten key recommendations for hospitals and ten key recommendations for care homes to help them tackle the underlying causes of undignified care. It also included detailed recommendations on the changes the Commission believes need to take place across the wider health and social care system.

The Commission spent eight months gathering evidence to help inform the development of its draft report and recommendations, taking written evidence submissions from over 40 organisations and holding three days of public hearings.
You can view the full list of organisations that submitted written evidence as well as the transcripts from the oral evidence sessions.
The Commission also sought expert advice from academic, medical and nursing reference groups, conducted site visits with health and social care providers, met with stakeholders and key experts, undertook a literature review of published evidence and collated existing tools and guidance that support improved levels of care for older people.
The Commission held a month-long public consultation to gain feedback on its draft report. The consultation closed on Tuesday 27 March and the Commission used the feedback it received to help inform the development of its final report and recommendations.
With Age UK and the LGA, we will publish a long term action plan alongside the Commission’s final report that will focus on working with our members and partners across health and social care to deliver the Commission’s recommendations.
