Theresa May to warn social care must wait until 2020 for extra funds, despite pledging £20bn for NHS | The Independent


Theresa May will anger social care leaders by warning they will have to wait for desperately needed extra money, despite her promise of a £20bn a year bailout for the NHS.

There will be no large cash injection to tackle the care crisis until the “forthcoming spending review”, the prime minister will say – which is not due to kick in until 2020.

Extra money for public health will also be allocated only when all departments are told their spending resources for years beyond 2020, she will confirm in a speech in London on Monday.

  1. No extra funding until 2020 for Social care, that is ridiculous, for the Social Care Crisis is now and in many parts of the UK there may not be Social Care in 2020.

    The Social Care Crisis is not only creating lack of respect and dignity for those who need social care, but is creating even more pressure on the NHS through the lack of social care.

    Once again the Government can not seen beyond their nose and are blind to what is before their eyes.
