NCF responds to the announcement of additional funding for the NHS

18 June 2018

NCF believes that the increased funding announced this weekend for the 
NHS will provide essential funds, but needs to be matched by an immediate focus on addressing the fragility of the social care sector. 

“Recognising the need for greater public spending on health is just part of the picture” says Vic Rayner, NCF Executive Director. 

“We know that there is a need for an integrated solution to the challenges facing our public health and care system, and it is vital that the government takes this on board. There should now be no delay in the production of a bold and audacious green paper that enables social care to offer an ambitious service to meet the needs of citizens now and in the future.”

Whilst further announcements are expected today to determine how additional NHS funding should be spent, and a budget announcement later in the year in relation to how this funding will be generated – the recent ADASS budget survey shows that social care continues to fall behind. Vic says “The long term solutions to either health or care should not be seen in isolation and it is imperative that all further planning, announcements and strategies no longer just talk about integration, but ensure that it is a meaningful partnership of equals. This would be the ultimate birthday present for communities across the country.”
