The Tories are ignoring the worsening crises in social care, health and welfare | Letters

Iain Malcolm says the government has missed countless opportunities to improve social care; Nick Finer says the health minister is either complacent or in denial about the NHS’s troubles; David Etherington and Martin Jones say authorities have ignored the evidence on universal credit; and John Evers wonders about the obsession with Brexit amid a sea of domestic troubles Thank you for leading the debate on the national crisis in social care ( Forgotten and forsaken , Social care supplement, 11 October). As David Brindle rightly states, there was a “deafening silence from last week’s Conservative party gathering in terms of any relevant policy or funding initiative”. The government has missed countless opportunities to address this crisis. Work is yet to begin on the review promised earlier this year, while local government finances continue to be squeezed. Faced with the double dilemma of a growing elderly population and chronic underfunding from central government, the social care system in Britain is at breaking point. This fact of life has been highlighted by organisations such as the NHS, the Care Quality Commission and the King’s Fund for some time, yet the government ignores their warnings. The precept does not plug the gap left by a diminishing central government grant, the introduction of the national living wage and increasing demand, particularly in areas with the lowest council tax base, where demand is higher. In 2016/17 the 2% increase in council tax raised just £900,000 for adult social care in South Tyneside – against £9.8m needed. Following the additional funding announcement in spring, the government has yet to state what funding, if any, will be available beyond the initial three-year period. We need long-term solutions and fair funding to enable us to provide our ageing population with the care and dignity they deserve. Cllr Iain Malcolm Leader, South Tyneside council 12-10-17

my new social worker doesn't seem to care like my last one did? Your last social worker would have had a light caseload if he was retiring so he had the time to phone you. Your new social worker will have a full caseload and won't have the time to do much more than visit you once a week or fortnight. Unfortunately mental health crises do come up and your social worker will have to miss appointments although she should phone you to let you know. You have to appreciate that most people don't have a care co-ordinator due to NHS cuts so you're lucky to have anyone. If you complain you risk losing yours.
What job positions would you suggest? Look for job openings where you college degree is applicable such as the following: Health Care Aide Enrollment Specialist, Health Care Home Health Care Provider Health Care Aid Health Care Administrator Health Care Assistant Home Health Care Worker Products Assembler (Pharmaceutical, Health Care Products) Facility Administrator, Health Care Home Health/Hospice Care Sales Representative Health Care Analyst Home Health Caregiver Registered Nurse (RN), Critical Care Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Administration Assistant
Has Corbyn created a more right wing party by forcing May to do coalition with DUP? Right wing!? You need to understand what the DUP stand for.......They are rather more left wing than the Tories of social policies. I think a deal with the DUP will see some of the more unpopular pledges from Tories, such the WFP, triple lock on pension, elderly care cost dropped or at least softened!

In what ways have Social Security and Medicare influenced increases in US life expectancy over the years, and how is this beneficial? For working members of our society who have health care, or retired with health care, we have THE BEST health care in the world, bar none. It is when you add lazy urban dwellers who refuse to get a job and refuse to do anything to better themselves, that our health care rates suffer. Why do you think people from every other country, when given a choice, come to the USA for health care? HMM?

Health-Care Reform and the Crises of the Conservative Intelligentsia Some might say it's been a long time coming—at least since Richard Nixon's appeals to the "Silent Majority" and Spiro Agnew's vilification of the media—but the crisis of conservative intellectualism is coming to a head at the moment. It's a fascinating spectacle to watch, and it is the roiling subtext to the whole debate about health-care reform....

Web 2.0 and Social Networking Come to Health Care As the U.S. Presidential debates have shown, Barack Obama and John McCain can't agree on much. One rare exception: electronic health records. Obama has proposed spending $50 billion to help doctors and hospitals digitize their files and build patient databases. McCain agrees that electronic recordkeeping could lower costs and save lives—say, by helping doctors more easily recognize which patients are on dangerous drug combinations. Their proposals are part of a larger trend to bring the U.S. medical system, which still runs on paper and pens
