Social care providers can sign up to the Health Charter hereFollowing today’s Autumn Budget statement Dr Rhidian Hughes, VODG chief executive said:


“Government’s continued failure to fund social care has consequences. It means that’s unmet need is rising with devastating effects on people who rely on care services. It means that local services continue to erode and the workforce will not receive the required investment in training and skills. It means that the Care Quality Commission’s warnings about the sustainability of provision are not being acted upon. It means that additional pressures will be put on the NHS.”
