SOCIAL CARE

18th October 2018

The Government has announced how much additional funding local authorities in England will receive to ease pressures over winter thanks to its balanced approach to the economy, including £3.3 million for West Sussex County Council. 

Earlier this month, the Health and Social Care Secretary announced £240 million for the social care system over winter, giving councils a significant boost to prevent people from going into hospital unnecessarily and getting them home as soon as they are ready. 

This funding will ease pressure on the health system, and follows the announcement of £145 million to improve emergency care within the NHS this winter.

The money will pay for home care packages to help patients get out of hospital quicker, reablement packages to help patients carry out everyday tasks and regain mobility and confidence, and home adaptations.

Sir Nicholas has welcomed this announcement of £3.3m for social care services in West Sussex thanks to the Government’s balanced approach to the economy and the vigorous lobbying of West Sussex Members of Parliament.

Notes

 

·      Earlier this month, the Government announced £240 million of social care investment to ease NHS winter pressures. The investment in adult social care this winter will help local authorities reduce pressures on the NHS by getting patients home quicker and freeing up hospital beds across England.

 

·      The regional allocation of the funding was announced on the 17th October, 2018. Local authorities in England will receive a share of a £240 million fund to help local areas ease winter pressures on the NHS.

 

·      The Government has given the NHS £145 million to improve emergency care ahead of winter. The funding is being spent on 81 new schemes to upgrade wards, redevelop A&E departments, improve same-day emergency care, and improve systems for managing the number of beds in use.
