Wednesday’s Spending Review provides the Government with an opportunity to start solving our care crisis. Scope’s chief executive Richard Hawkes asks on the New Statesman blog: what is the Chancellor going to do?
“Properly funded social care is now a ‘no brainer’.
By acting decisively the Chancellor can go a long way to solving the social care crisis, protect A&Es, and save cash across government departments. It’s a triple win.
But the Government will only be able to claim that it’s solved the social care crisis once it has decided who is in and who is out of the system.”
