Patients Association responds to Red Cross Adult Social Care Report

Author:The Patients Association
Date Added:11 June 2012

Katherine Murphy, Chief Executive of the Patients Association said,

“We are becoming increasingly concerned about the squeeze in resources being placed on adult social care services, as local Councils seek to manage the huge cuts in their grants from central government. We regularly hear from relatives that have contacted our Helpline to complain that their loved one has been sent home to be cared for, but with a care package which is inadequate in either scope or implementation. We have had some truly concerning cases of real neglect, which relatives blame on the lack of resources within the social care system. Even in these hard financial times, our elderly and vulnerable patients have the right to be given the care they deserve.”
