Budget 2021: NHS in England to receive £5.9bn to cut waiting lists – BBC News

It is good to see more funding coming through for the NHS, whether it is fully sufficient is open to debate.

But, the other major problem is social care, where no funding is coming forward except the way insufficient amount announced earlier and even then the main focus is on the NHS and what is coming to social care is not immediate.

So again Social Care is forgotten about, when it should not be as it is as important as the NHS, if not more so and should been seen as such. Unfortunately no one appears to recognise the importance of social care and even if they do are not prepared to do anything about it.

But, to disregard social care is done at peril, not only for those who desperately have to rely on social care, but for every social care failure it rebounds two-fold on the NHS, for it further increases care inequalities, but also causes more reliance on the NHS.

So to ignore social care is in fact a very false economy factor, for to sufficiently fund social care will provide benefits, not only for those on social care, but will mean that health deteriorations will be much minimised and therefore save costs on the NHS.
