Care in Crisis - Age UK Campaign

Care in Crisis

Published on 15 July 2018 11:01 PM

 1.4 million older people aren’t getting the care and support they need.  Delayed hospital discharges due to the lack of care provision when people return home from hospital or because people have unsuitable housing/care arrangements are costing the NHS £500 a minute.  We want to raise the public's awareness of the situation in social care through this  Care in Crisis Campaign  (#CareCrisis).
