Fiona Carragher, Director of Research and Influencing at Alzheimer’s Society said:

“The pandemic has exposed how truly broken our social care system is so it’s really encouraging to see the Government’s commitment towards health and social care coming together to deliver more innovative, joined-up services in the future.

"It is essential this is done in conjunction with long term social care reform - as Sir Simon Stevens has said, the future success of the NHS depends on urgently addressing the state of social care.

“We are looking forward to seeing more detail about how integration and collaboration will be achieved at a local level to provide the care and support that people with dementia so desperately need, not just in the future, but right now, when people require the services more than ever.  

"This is a good step forward – we need to follow it with a fundamental overhaul to deliver a system that’s fit for purpose, stops overstretched unpaid family carers being forced to plug the gaps, and gives people with dementia the care they deserve.”
