Social care is hot on the agenda of all the political parties especially when their is a general election dawning. But it is clear to see that the public are clearly concerned about the state of the health and social care sector.
Social care services are run by local authorities. Depending on where you live local authorities run social care services in different ways compared to Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland, for example, someone’s viability to receive social care from local authorities is means tested based on savings and assets, local authorities in Scotland use a different system.
One talking point is how much should the threshold be in savings and assets before someone qualifies to receive social care. In England and Northern Ireland if someone has assets and savings less than £23,250 then they would qualify for social care, in Wales it is £24,000.
Through July and August this year we have talked about the effects Brexit is having on the health and social care sector. Over the past three years the time in the chamber in the House of Commons has been dominated by foreign affairs mainly Brexit, this means that there is far less time to debate how to reform and fix social care services in the UK, and this can have a long term affect and social care services deteriorating further still.
Senior experts have said that politicians cannot afford to neglect the pressures that the health and social care sector are under. The council-run systems are in desperate need of reform and new funding solutions, experts have repeatedly said that past government’s have failed to address the issues raised.
