Think tanks press government to tackle social care

The King’s Fund, Nuffield Trust and the Health Foundation are urging the government to address the critical state of social care in its forthcoming autumn statement.

The briefing calls on the government to recognise the immediate funding pressures facing the sector by bringing forward to next year funding from the Better Care Fund which is planned to reach £1.5 billion in 2019/20. It also makes it clear that the NHS funding settlement will need to be revisited in future financial statements.
