The Latest from Us

Read our response to the Prime Minister’s NHS funding announcement. Greg Allen, Chief Executive of Future Care Capital, said: “More funding for the NHS is welcome news, but we should also remember that adult social care provision faces a cliff-edge without a long-term plan. Governments of all political colours have wrestled with how to develop a sustainable long-term funding plan for the NHS – adult social care funding should be at the forefront of Ministers’ minds too. I would urge the government to think seriously about harnessing the value of NHS data. It could boost the country’s balance sheet and provide the NHS with an additional source of funding to help deliver sustainable provision for decades to come.” https://futurecarecapital.org.uk/press_releases/harness-the-value-of-nhs-data-as-part-of-plans-to-deliver-long-term-sustainability/
