The Commission held a month-long public consultation to gain feedback on its draft report and recommendations.
The consultation closed on Tuesday 27 March 2012 and we would like to thank everybody who took the time to contribute. The Commission used the feedback received to help inform the development of its final report and recommendations.
Read the final report and recommendations, Delivering Dignity, published on 18 June 2012.
The Commission spent eight months gathering evidence to help inform the development of its draft report and recommendations, taking written evidence submissions from some 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 and a series of meetings with key stakeholders, undertook a literature review of published evidence and collated existing tools and guidance that support improved levels of care for older people.
