On social care, the Migration Advisory Committee report says:
‘We also expect the result to be a small increase in GDP per capita, a small improvement in the public finances, slightly reduced pressure in health, schools and social housing but slightly increased pressure in social care and a small rise in the dependency ratio. We remain concerned about the situation in social care, but the root cause of the problems there is the failure to offer competitive terms and conditions.’

We help to shape policy and practice through research and analysis; develop individuals, teams and organisations; promote understanding of the health and social care system; and bring people together to learn, share knowledge and debate. Our vision is that the best possible health and care is available to all.
