NHS Confederation Report that the Budget Announcement is ‘Good News’ for Health and Social Care

Following the announcement of the Sping Budget, NHS Confederation Chief Executive Niall Dickson has commented saying:

“This is good news – on social care the government has finally woken up to what many of us have been saying for some time – that hospitals and community services are desperately struggling, and that huge numbers of vulnerable older people are receiving inadequate or non-existent care.
“The extra funding will definitely help, but we await the details. We also welcome the announcement of a Green Paper on the long-term funding of social care – let us hope this time it results in action and not more words.”
