Prestige Nursing + Care echo Paul Burstow’s concerns on Care Funding

Jonathan Bruce, Managing Director of Prestige Nursing + Care comments on Paul Burstow’s concerns on the Treasury blocking elderly care funding

“Paul Burstow’s worries are echoed by Prestige Nursing + Care, as the Treasury blocking funding for elderly care could have disastrous consequences. The vast majority of people make no financial provision for the cost of elderly care. This, combined with the rising rates of care homes, means NHS beds will continue to be taken by elderly people who could be treated elsewhere leading to greater financial outlay for the Treasury in the long run.

“Failing to implement a cap on care would be a leap away from improving the social services system. With circumstances looking set to worsen, the coalition needs to make its move on care before it’s too late.”
