  1. Of the 4 Correspondents, only Bob Kerslake mentioned Social Care and has he states you can’t just look at the NHS, while ignoring Social Care, for in many instances they come arm – in – arm with each other.

    To fund one while reducing the funding for the other makes no sense at all.

    While there is supposed to be intergration of care, more joint working between Health and Social Care there will still be problems as each will be looking after its own. My view is to fully amalgamate both Health and Social Care into one organisation. By doing this you would cut out one management structure so in the long term there should be a cost saving. By being in one structure the waiting for one before the other can complete should be minimised.
