Government must take action to stop the cuts affecting the elderly
24 January 2012
As the NHS has to make savings of around £20 billion, it has been revealed by a survey by the Health Select Committee.
The majority of the cuts are on social care budgets with the average cut being 7%.
It is reported that half the councils surveyed have increased the hourly rate for home help and almost two in five have increased prices for residential care.
The Committee is urging the Government to take action to stop the cuts affecting the elderly.
