On Tuesday 3 December, The National Care Forum (NCF) launched its Manifesto, shaped by members, outlining key asks for social care and quick wins for the first 100 days of a new government.
With 122,000 vacancies across social care services and 1.4 million people believed to be going without the care and support they need every day, the incoming government must seize the opportunity and come forward with proposals that will last a generation and more.
Commenting on the Conservative party’s 2019 manifesto, Richard Murray, Chief Executive of The King’s Fund said:‘The Conservative manifesto offers a number of welcome NHS pledges, particularly to confront the current workforce crisis. However, the overall funding package pledged for frontline NHS services is less generous than the offers from the other major political parties and doesn’t represent a comprehensive funding plan that includes workforce training, capital funding, adult social care or public health.
