The Budget 2018 | Will adult social care ever get mentioned in a budget?

Given that information on proposed reforms is not due until the summer, it seems unlikely that social care will get a mention in the spring budget unless winter pressures in the NHS finally do launch it off the cliff edge that it currently hangs on.

Social care remains the Cinderella service to the NHS and for some reason the very reasonable arguments for more funding made by the likes of ADASS continue to fall on deaf ears. Legal challenges to service and funding cuts using the Care Act 2014 have so far been unsuccessful (see the provider article for more information on the recent care funding case).
