Let's do this: the promise of fixing social careLet's do this: the promise of fixing social care

A new report by the Health for Care coalition of 15 national health organisations, led by the NHS Confederation, says for there to be a functioning, effective NHS in England, there needs to be a strong and sustainable social care sector.

Heath leaders argue social care funding must urgently be put on a sustainable footing, to ensure social care is person-centred, accessible and available to all who need it, without pushing them into financial hardship.

Failure to do so jeopardises the NHS Long Term Plan and any meaningful integration. Social care, including domiciliary care, keeps people well and at home, preventing unnecessary hospital admissions and improving wellbeing. If the social care system does not have sufficient capacity, the NHS will experience greater demand for its services.
