£240 million social care investment to ease NHS winter pressures

The government has announced extra funding of £240m to help local authorities reduce pressures on the NHS by getting patients home quicker and freeing up hospital beds across England.

The extra funding, announced by secretary of state for health and social care Matt Hancock, is aimed at reducing delayed transfers of care and will be allocated to councils based on the adult social care relative needs formula.
