Care & Support Alliance responds to Mid-Term Review

January 7, 2013

Reacting to the Coalition’s Mid-Term Review published today, Chair of the Care & Support Alliance, Simon Gillespie said:

“Eighteen months after the Dilnot report was published, and following weeks and months of anticipation that the Mid-term Review would shed light on how the Coalition Government plans to help those facing the crippling costs of care, we now urgently need clarity and certainty on what the future holds for the crumbling social care system.

The Care & Support Alliance now calls upon the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister to give a firm commitment within weeks of how the Government will implement the Dilnot recommendations to tackle the growing crisis in social care.”
