  • Think tank report 'paints bleak picture' of social care future

    Think tank report 'paints bleak picture' of social care future

    23.09.16 Social care providers for older people in England are struggling to retain staff, maintain quality and stay in business, says a new report from the King’s Fund and the Nuffield Trust. According to the report, local authorities are having to make unenviable choices about where to cut services against a backdrop of delays in discharging older people from hospital. It says that many social care providers are surviving by relying on people who can fund their own care. The report adds: “Six consecutive years of cuts to local authority budgets have seen 26 per cent fewer people get help. No one has a full picture of what has happened to older people who are no longer entitled to publicly funded care: the human and financial costs to them and those who care for them are mounting” For the report CLICK HERE

  • Dementia research funding to drive innovation in health and social care

    Dementia research funding to drive innovation in health and social care

    22.09.16 Dementia research will be among the beneficiaries of what the government has billed as the “largest ever investment into health research.” Health secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced a five-year funding package worth £816 million to health overall, of which £45 million has been earmarked for dementia research. Welcoming the initiative, Alzheimer’s Society said that the funding would allow vital collaboration between researchers and clinicians, helping to drive innovation in dementia health and social care. But in a new report Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) has warned of the pressures on the NHS which could create obstacles for the next wave of dementia treatments. The report, Treatments of Tomorrow: Preparing for breakthroughs in dementia, argues that the cost of new treatments and problems evidencing the impact of disease-modifying therapies in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease are issues to be tackled urgently to pave the way for scientific advances.
