Today, I spoke out against the cuts to social care funding. I find it unacceptable that the Government can cut this funding and expect hospitals to have all the resources they need to make up the shortfall in care.
Cuts to social care funding risks lives and strips people of their dignity. This is not how we should be treating older residents around the country.
I have regular meetings with Senior Management at St George's Hospital to discuss funding cuts and how they are dealing with the extra pressures with less resources.
