Responding to the announcement on adult social care in today’s Queen’s Speech, Ravi Bains, Chief Executive of Grosvenor Health & Social Care, said:
“I welcome the announcement of the Adult Social Care Bill, which has been long overdue. It is vital that the Bill addresses the short and long term issues surrounding social care provision, particularly funding, but the sector needs further detail soon – we have already waited too long.
“Social care is one of the key issues affecting the public and while it is reassuring that this is on the government’s agenda, we need immediate action to address the core problems. I look forward to seeing the government’s proposals.”
