During the election, we asked political parties to include these pledges in their manifestoes. This government will:
- introduce a fully costed workforce plan for health and social care, owned and delivered by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care*
- introduce reforms to ensure long-time sustainability and funding of social care. This will include a pledge to provide care free at the point of use*
- end the ‘five-week wait’ for benefits
- legislate for financial service providers to have a legal duty of care for vulnerable consumers.
*N.B.: Because health is a devolved issue, this pledge only applies to people living in England. If you want to know more about what is happening in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales then please email email@example.com.Close
