LET'S FIX THIS NHSConfed HFC Report Jan 21

“LET’S DO THIS” THE PROMISE OF FIXING SOCIAL CARE – Jan 21

Health for Care (HFC) is a coalition, led by the NHS Confederation, of 15 national health organisations.

We’re calling for the government to deliver a sustainable social care system in England, backed up by a long-term financial settlement.

“It has long been recognised that social care needs urgent reform to ensure it can provide the care and support that millions of vulnerable people up and down the country need. After years of delays by successive governments of all parties, Prime Minister Boris Johnson pledged to “fix social care once and for all” and committed to publishing reform proposals within his first 100 days in office. However, along with so many plans in 2020, this was derailed by COVID-19. One year on from the election, we are still awaiting the government’s proposals.”
