Austerity ‘ripped resilience out of health and care service’ before Covid-19 crisis hit, says IPPR | Care Industry News


Underinvestment in social and community care left four in five hospitals with ‘dangerously low’ spare beds as crisis hit

Major new analysis of the state of the health and care system in England in the run up to the Covid-19 pandemic today reveals the extent of the crisis that was facing medics and carers even before the crisis hit.

  1. The IPPR (Institute for Public Policy Research) think tank are saying it as it is, but will the Government even listen and even take the recommended actions, I very much doubt it.

    This Government and many previous Governments have treated Social Care with disdain and have created the current crisis within Social Care leading to even more problems with health care.

    In fact, the dis-investment in Social care started well before austerity, but it was austerity which was the final blow.

    Until both Social Care and health care are sufficiently funded there will be no hope for Social Care.

    But funding is but one of the problems.

    I have been campaigning for some months now to bring these problems out into the open though my petition, Solve the crisis in Social Care, https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/solve-the-crisis-in-social-care

    To bring pressure on the Government this petition needs your support, so please sign it and then share.
