The future of social care funding – Professor Jon Glasby speaks to BBC Breakfast


Following his article in the British Medical Journal on the current funding crisis in social care, Professor Jon Glasby this morning spoke to BBC Breakfast on the same topic.

This follows on from Prime Minister Theresa May’s confirmation that local authorities would be allowed to bring forward increases in council tax in order to ease the pressures on a creaking social care system. Professor Glasby explains that this can only be a short-term fix and that a thorough national debate around long-term social care solutions is needed.
