Referendum aftermath

24 June 2016

The outcome of the EU referendum may well present new challenges for relatives and residents, as well as for all current and potential users of care services. If, as widely predicted, some kind of economic recession follows this result, it will be necessary, more than ever, to protect our fragile and inadequately resourced service provision for older people.

Varying pledges about the NHS dominated the recent debate, however the social care budget hardly featured. We can only hope that the much promised ‘savings’ will enhance and develop social care services and ensure that high quality care will henceforward be delivered by properly rewarded, trained and skilled staff.

We live in hope.
