Alarm over £2 billion gap in social care funding

The NHS Confederation has issued a stark warning to the government about the £2 billion gap in long-term social care funding, saying that a failure to resolve the issue will have a severe impact on patients.

In a report called Papering Over the Cracks, the NHS Confederation analyses the demographic and financial trends in social care, assesses the impact on the NHS, and proposes a way forward.
