Social Care: Too many vulnerable people struggling to get the care they need

20 Mar 2024

Responding to the latest Public Accounts Committee Report on Reforming Adult Social Care, Liberal Democrat Health and Social Care Spokesperson Daisy Cooper MP said: 

“Too many vulnerable people are struggling to get the care they need, unable to live their lives independently, stuck in hospital when they don’t need to be there or deteriorating whilst languishing on NHS waiting lists. 

"The Conservatives promise to fix social care ‘once and for all’ lies in tatters. 

“Too many people who need care have been abandoned, and local authorities have been left to pick up the pieces.

“The only way to solve this is for political parties to get around the table and agree on a long-term solution that works for everyone. 

"That’s why the Liberal Democrats are calling for Labour and the Conservatives to commit to cross-party talks after the next general election so that we can finally end this crisis - this time, once and for all.”
