Sustainable social care settlement needed says NHS Confederation in response to LGA consultation

Niall Dickson

Responding to the Local Government Association’s (LGA) consultation on social care, Niall Dickson, chief executive of the NHS Confederation, which represents organisations across the healthcare sector, said:

“The social care crisis is an avoidable tragedy and the LGA is right to argue that it remains fundamentally underfunded and its prospects can only worsen unless the government acts.

“An effective and functional Adult social care system is vital for the health, wellbeing and independence for so many and it is essential for our NHS to survive and thrive.

“Significant cuts have left at least 1.4 million people with unmet social care needs. Without a sustainable settlement for social care the whole system will continue to struggle to cope.”
