Tom Richmond: Bed bound with a broken hip and cancer but deemed well enough to go home – my experience of social careThere is also an impact on the NHS. If people cannot access care services, there is not only an impact on their dignity, mobility and wellbeing but they are much more likely to end up in hospital – a place they do not want to be and at much higher cost – sometimes with serious illnesses or injuries that could have been avoided by better prevention and early intervention.We need to deal with this issue, and the House of Commons needs to appreciate the scale of the … [Read more...] about Dr Sarah Wollaston: We must build a social care consensus now, be honest over the cost and show we have learned from Brexit
