Social Care: worries and inspirations

By 20 December, 2019 No Comments

The UK General Election on 12 December 2019 led to a new Conservative Government under Prime Minister Boris Johnson. A week later, the new Government’s programme was set out in the Queen’s Speech. The Conservative manifesto promised to build cross-party consensus on tackling problems in social care and find solutions that command the widest possible support and stand the test of time.

The Sustainable Care team is keen to engage with this process. This week, PI Sue Yeandle asked each of us to highlight both a key ‘worry’ about social care in the UK, and something that inspires us to think things can improve. A selection of our thoughts appears below.

In January we will outline our concerns and hopes, with underpinning evidence, in an ‘open letter’ to the Prime Minster and Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
