Barbara
Keeley MP
,
Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Minister for Social Care, commenting on new
figures for delayed transfers of care due to a lack of social care, said:

“It
is worrying that the number of days that patients are stuck in hospital
due to a lack of social care has increased by more than a quarter since last
year.“

“Delayed
days caused by patients waiting for care packages at home and in care homes and
nursing homes have also increased this month, yet we still see no action from
the Tory Government to deal with the social care crisis.

“A
Labour Government would provide the urgent additional funding needed to deal
with the crisis in social care.”
