Dr José-Luis Fernández is analysing variability in local provision of social care services in England, its causes and consequences on local equity and efficiency. This work concentrates on issues of territorial justice and intersystemic performance, looking in particular at the interdependence between social care and health care systems.He has also carried out extensive microeconomic analysis of equity and efficiency in the allocation of social and health services, in particular concentrating on the development of methodologies for the estimation of the impact of services on the users’ welfare. As part of this strand of analysis, José-Luis has collaborated in the evaluation of the national Individual Budgets pilots.
Until recently, José-Luis was part of the Wanless social care review team, which analysed future funding requirements for long term care for older people in England.
