Social care budget is woeful says NHS Confederation

Niall Dickson, chief executive of the NHS Confederation, which represents organisations across the healthcare system, responded to  NHS Digital figures on social care funding

“No one can take any comfort from this. In real terms and in the real world this is a tiny increase to a budget that is woeful. 

“The reality is that thousands of vulnerable people are not receiving the support they need and the health service is every day being placed under intolerable pressure as a result.

“The government has promised to put this right and it is now time for them to get on with that.”
