  • What should the General Election result mean for social care?

    Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party secured a huge majority as the British public headed to the polls yesterday.

    With a turnout of 67.3%, a number of former Labour safe seats saw Conservative gains.

    One of the early votes last night saw Blyth Valley become a Conservative seat for the first time in its near 70 year history.

    It had been held by Labour since its formation in 1950.

    Commenting on the outcome, one Labour candidate said it was the “worst result Labour could have imagined.”

    Now, aside from the pressing Brexit deal, the British public will turn to Boris Johnson’s election manifesto to see what the next five years will have in store.

    Taking a closer look at adult social care, in the build up to the election, the Conservatives laid out a three-point plan for social care.

    The manifesto pledged an extra £1bn to adult social care in the UK, as well as a commitment to seeking a cross-party consensus on long term reform.

    The plans added that “nobody needing care should be forced to sell their home to pay for it.”

    Speaking at manifesto’s launch, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “Since this government has been in power we’ve allocated about £1.5bn towards addressing the social care issue both for adult and child social care and helping local councils with the huge pressures that they face.
