Three lost years for welfare

In Dagens Industri today, in response to the government’s presentation of the Reepalu welfare inquiry yesterday, Håkan Tenelius, from the Association of Private Care Providers (Vårdföretagarna), writes, “Many thought that a solid inquiry would be able to present proposals that secured quality as well as freedom of choice and diversity. However instead it brought macabre, theoretical calculation models which no minister with self esteem can present to parliament.”

He writes, in the reference group, “it was clear… that the inquiry has not had any ambition to constructively contribute to the development of quality in welfare” and is doubtful of the quality measurements currently used. “The Reepalu inquiry’s answer is three lost years for welfare.”

He urges the alliance to take the initiative and the majority in the Riksdag must do what it can to bring about a process for authorisation for all welfare providers.
