Health and Social Care Committee to publish report on Social Care: Funding and Workforce
19 October 2020
The Health and Social Care Committee report on Social Care: Funding and Workforce will be published at 00.01 on Thursday 22 October 2020.
The inquiry has examined reforms needed to the system of funding social care and the level of extra funding required from government in order to relieve current pressures on the NHS and on people who need social care. Shortages in the social care workforce and what solutions need to be found to address changes in the years ahead have also been considered. The inquiry was paused in March to allow the Committee to focus on the crisis posed by the coronavirus pandemic and reopened in May.
