What of the future? A point of view by Neil Crowther

“People want a life, not a ‘bed’ or a ‘service’. Until our conception of social care – or something to replace it – shifts here, no amount of integration with the NHS will improve anything. The National Care Service will just continue to fail to meet people’s aspirations instead.”

Neil Crowther, Independent expert on equality, human rights and social change with a particular interest in working to secure the rights of disabled people.
