The Department does not publish this information. The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government publishes estimates of adult social care expenditure as part of the local authority revenue expenditure and financing statistical series, but these are primarily presented as net current expenditure and in nominal terms only. The most recent publication covers outturn data for 2016-17 which can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/local-authority-revenue-expenditure-and-financing

NHS Digital do publish information on spending in real terms in their Adult Social Care Activity and Finance Report which is available for years up to 2016-17 at https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/publications/statistical/adult-social-care-activity-and-finance-report.
