This is so true and has been so for many years. For Social Care is the forgotten health care service.
Much has been said about NHS workers, but even then only a restricted few. Not saying nurses don’t deserve a substantial pay rise for they do, but social care workers even more so.
There are so many staff shortages in social care that only limited care can be given and not to all that need care. If recognition is not given then even the limited social care being given currently could be even more reduced. Any reductions in Social Care will have serious effects on health care and the NHS.
The Government need to keep its promises to Social care and deliver all that is required for the consequences of not doing so are so bad and devastating for all concerned.
That is why I support the petition, Solve the crisis in Social Care, https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/solve-the-crisis-in-social-care
