    This is all well and good, but it is not just down to the NHS, for social care needs to be part of this change. But this cannot succeed while we have a Government that is content with running down social care to the bone and beyond.

    Social care and the NHS need to be more integrated. There is now one Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Jeremy Hunt and now he needs to deal with all this as one. Should all in the Government, even the Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond come on board and the funding should now be as one.

    Why not go even further and have one organisation throughout the UK for both health and social care then the funding arguments between social care and CCG would disappear all assessments of need would be done by one organisation. Management costs would be reduced and therefore savings which are needed would occur.

    It is a thought and one I have been harbouring for some time.
