Time is running out for social care, says Care England

October 10, 2018

Provider representative organisation Care England has submitted evidence to the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee’s inquiry into social care funding.

Care England chief executive Professor Martin Green said time was running out for social care.

“Inadequate short term injections of cash to either bail out councils as they limp from one crisis to the next, or to temporarily prop up the NHS during winter pressures do not address the deep rooted inherent problems of the current system,” Prof. Green told the committee.

“The sector needs to be able to plan and invest for the long term. The stronger the understanding of the interdependencies of social care with the NHS, the stronger the chances of progress being made to create a sustainable care system.”

Chaired by Lord Forsyth of Drumlean, the Economic Affairs Committee will focus its inquiry on the challenges faced by the social care system in England. The committee is seeking to assess the effectiveness of different funding models, the shortfalls in delivery and make recommendations on how future social care demands can be met in England.
