Health Committee have helped bust social care funding myths but the sector remains at critical

VODG represents leading not for profit disability providers. Responding to the House of Commons Health Select Committee report on the impact of the spending review on health and social care, VODG chief executive Dr Rhidian Hughes said:

“Demand for provision is rising whilst Government’s policies are leaving fewer disabled people eligible for essential community support. The Health Committee have helped bust social care funding myths but the sector remains at a critical state. The spending review settlement was woefully inadequate and, with her new Cabinet in place, we urge the Prime Minister to use the report to lead a progressive and fair approach to care and support in this country.”
