Liz meets care providers


Last week I met with the Care Providers Alliance (CPA) to listen to the views of independent and voluntary organisations providing adult social care in England.

CPA members were seriously concerned about the state of social care. They are under huge pressure as they try to deal with chronic staff shortages, historical underfunding, and the current economic crisis which is causing their costs to soar. 

I told the meeting that I would continue to voice their concerns and hold the Government to account, particularly the new Chancellor who said just months ago that one of his biggest regrets as Health Secretary was not reforming social care. 

Labour would deliver a 10-year plan of investment and reform in social care to give care providers and care users the stability and certainty they need. You can read more about this here.

I look forward to continuing to work closely with the CPA in the months ahead.
