Funding from higher taxes would cut avoidable deaths and improve equality after the Covid pandemic, yes it would, but with Social Care it can’t wait for over a decade for it needs its funding now, like yesterday.
COVID, if we did not know it already that England, even the whole of the UK needs Social Care like never before. The funding increase has to be now, before any more deaths take place.
The funding situation was bad enough before the start of austerity cuts in 2010, they made it much worse and now COVID has left Social Care so decimated that no one is safe.
To not do anything, shows that this Government has no consideration for anyone in need of Social Care, it is as though they are being left to fend for themselves and this they are unable to do, hence their need for Social Care.
To do nothing means that this Government has blood on its hands.
