Commenting on Jeremy Hunt being named Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Liberal Democrat former Care Minister Norman Lamb said:
“So what does this new title actually mean? Unless the Government is proposing a radical change to social care funding, it looks like mere window dressing.
“As health minister responsible for social care, I took the Care Act through Parliament – introducing a cap on care costs that has since been abandoned by the Conservatives.
“This kind of gimmick is no substitute for finding a long-term solution to the crisis facing the NHS and social care.”Leave a comment
