  1. NHS England chief executive Sir Simon Stevens has said plans for social care reform need to be in place within a year. This is all well and good, but is Social Care in the UK in a state to last a year. Within Social Care there are lives of vulnerable people, both children and adults and their families and as every day passes the state of Social Care is having an impact on these vulnerable people and their families.. Any deterioration in care being given or its withdrawal to these persons is diminishing their standard of life and eventually their lives will end due to these reductions in care.

    With regards to people with Learning Disabilities their mortality is already 20% below that of people who do not have Learning Disabilities due to some extent their disabilities.. That, in itself, is not right, for the continued reductions, due to lack of funding, for Social Care, is a factor which could increase the this gap in mortality, thereby increasing the early death rates, when everything should be being done to reduce the gap.

    None of these persons asked to be born with their disabilities and nor did their families, so the state should be doing all they can to reduce the gap, rather than, at present, the inaction is doing the reverse.

    This is a disgrace for which this and previous Governments should be taken to task, for promises are easily made, especially when nothing is done or said when the promises are not forthcoming.

    The Governments and those in those Governments should be ashamed.
