The Health for Care campaign was launched in March 2019 in response to the growing crisis in social care and increasing challenges facing the health sector. Since then, the campaign has worked with a wide range of politicians and the wider social care sector to champion the hugely important work of the social care sector and find a solution to the challenges facing the sector.
Patients and families relying on decimated social care services are at a loss and going without the proper care they need to live fulfilled and healthy lives; carers, community support workers and nurses are struggling to meet demand and morale is at an all-time low; and the NHS, local government and third and private sector care providers are under-resourced and unable to deliver the best possible care for patients in the right setting and at the right time.
This campaign pack has been designed for parliamentary candidates ahead of the general election on 12 December. The Health for Care coalition is keen that as many leading political voices call for action to #FixSocialCare.
