Hft has welcomed the news that Matt Hancock has kept his role as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care following a Cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.


Billy Davis, Public Affairs and Policy Manager at Hft, commented: “We welcome Matt’s reappointment as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. At a time when the sector is facing great uncertainty, continuity at the heart of government is very welcome.

“After years of government inaction, Matt will be aware of the need for proposals for reform to be brought forward as a matter of urgency. As our latest Sector Pulse Check report found, one in five social care providers in England have been forced to cut support in the last year and one in three are having to shed staff to remain financially viable.

“At a time when demand for social care is growing, this simply cannot continue. We look forward to working with Matt in delivering these much needed reforms, and delivering the sustainable future that providers, staff and the people they support, so richly deserve.”
