BBC Radio 4's 'You and Yours' programme discusses rural homecareBBC Radio 4's 'You and Yours' programme discusses rural homecare

The difficulty of arranging homecare in rural areas was discussed on BBC Radio 4's 'You and Yours' programme on 18 October 2018. UKHCA Policy Director Colin Angel and ADASS President Glen Garrod explained that care packages in rural areas with short visit times and lengthy travel time could be uneconomic for providers, and with the current funding issues facing local authorities, difficult to sustain. Ultimately social care was in desparate need of a sustainable, long-term funding solution that ensured people in England receive the care they need, and both provider and local authority representatives hoped the Government's Green Paper would address the issues. www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0000qp0 (at approx 34 minutes).
