Standing up for social care

I’m really proud to work with Independent Age and MPs from other parties to find long-term solutions for the NHS and social care. The challenges the NHS and social care face are bigger now than at any point in our history. NHS finances are under huge strain, many are not receiving the care they need and, as our population ages, demand for care will increase. We must face up to the big issue of how we fund services to ensure they are fit for the future. This is why I’m supporting the NHS and Social Care (Commission) Bill, which calls for cross-party support for an independent commission into the future of the NHS and social care.
