The BBC recently reported that over 150,000 people have signed a petition calling to end adult social care cuts, especially care for elderly and disabled people. In Boris Johnson’s opening statement in the House of Commons on July 25th, he openly stated that his Government would fix the health and social care crisis in the UK, he would be releasing new funds to help the NHS and other public services.
However, the recent petition signed by more than 150,000 people is urging that Boris Johnson end the cuts that they say are strangling the health and social care sector. It has been said that cuts are diminishing the ability to deliver good health and social care to elderly people and those with disabilities.
Boris Johnson has stated that new funding has been announced for the NHS, however 40 health leaders have written to the new PM and have said, cuts in health and social care actually increases the pressure on the NHS, so new funding that has been made available to the NHS doesn’t really help it as cuts in other health sectors cause pressure on the NHS, the process is counter-productive.
People are arguing that new funding should be made available as well as new funding for the health and social care sector as a whole, people are saying that this argument is the only true way to help the NHS, to fund health services across the board.
The letter that was written to the PM stated four key areas that need focus, these are:
1) All political parties coming up with a productive plan to help the health and social care crisis.
2) A financial settlement be put in place to ensure adequate funding for health and social care services.
3) Money to be made available in the short term to ensure on-going health services are adequate.
4) Lastly, support for a wider range of people from those with all kinds of health and social care needs.
The letter does have a lot of clout, one of the health leaders who has signed the letter is Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust chief executive Siobhan Melia. Siobhan has said that people who need social care are facing un-acceptable delays in gaining the care that they need, this means that the NHS is having to care for people for longer periods of time putting pressure on the service.
