Care costs are increasing. Spending is not.
How urgent is the funding crisis in UK social care?

"Were extra funding to be available... it should be going to social care. Googling the words 'social care funding crisis' returns 2 million results."

NHS England chief executive, Simon Stevens

November 2016

What is the social care funding gap?

Health.org.uk

"Total public spending on adult social services in England has fallen by 6.9%. This is equivalent to an annual average fall of 1.8% a year in real terms. [Meanwhile] pressures on adult social care are likely to rise by an average of 4.4% a year in real terms."

Health.org.uk

"Even if the vast majority of councils choose to levy the new precept on Council Tax as they did this year, the publicly funded social care system faces a £1.9 billion funding gap next year."

Kingsfund.org, Autumn 2016

House of Commons Social Care Debate, Nov 2016

"Care staff receive less than the national minimum wage. They are not paid for travel time and they are not paid the correct rate if they sleep over. We should value our care staff more highly, we should pay them properly, we should train them, and they should know that they do a valued job."
Barbara Keeley, MP Labour

"All of us on both sides of the House must confront the chronic underfunding of the health and care system, and we need to find ways to raise significantly more resources to ensure we have a modern and efficient health and care system."
Norman Lamb, MP Liberal Democrat

Hansard, 16th Nov 2016

It is not just about funding, however, but also about how we support and train our social care staff."

Dr Sarah Wollaston, Hansard,
Nov 2016

"For the first time since the system was created after the Second World War, there will be a limit on how much people pay for their care in their old age... From April 2020 the amount you pay for care if you are over 65 is being capped at £72,000."

BBC News, July 2015

How many people have their care needs met?

"After six consecutive years of funding cuts, spending by local authorities on social care for older people fell by 9 per cent in real terms between 2009/10 and 2014/15. This has led to a reduction of at least 26 per cent - more than 400,000 people - in the number of older people accessing publicly funded social care, with a further reduction in 2015/16."

Kingsfund, 2016

BBC, Sep 2016

The UK's growing, ageing population

NHS, ONS

Care budget cuts impact NHS hospital efficiency

"Cuts to local authorities' social care budgets results in older people staying in hospital much longer than is necessary.... I am hearing more and more regularly from colleagues who have had to cancel planned procedures because there aren't enough beds free on wards to admit patients for their surgery.

"As a result the NHS is becoming increasingly inefficient. It is a vicious circle that won't end until we properly resource social and community care."

Clare Marx, President of the Royal College of Surgeons
The Guardian, Nov 2016

"The cost of keeping older patients in hospital who no longer need to be there has been estimated at £820 million a year"

National Audit Office 2016

"The major cause of this increase in the number of delayed discharges is the number of patients waiting for care packages at home and for nursing home placements."

Kingsfund.org

What could the saved £820m pay for?

"The amount of money available to local authorities for adult social care sevices will rise significantly across the Parliament, and ensures that up to £3.5 billion more will be available by 2020."

Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary, Nov 2016

"Spending per capita on [over 85s] is around what it was in 2002. Funding has not kept pace with the 34 per cent increase in the over-85 population over this period. Total spending on social care services for all age groups is over 10 per cent less than it was in 2009."

Kingsfund.org, 2015

Care spend for 85s hasn't changed since 2002
- what else happened all that time ago?

"The social care funding gap is likely to be at least £1.9 billion in 2018... despite a growing older population and increasing demand for services, spending on social care in the UK will slip back to less than 1 per cent of GDP by the end of this parliament."

Kingsfund, Autumn 2016
