CCC: study must look at paying for care

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Giving credit where credit is due, CCC, a broad-based coalition dedicated to improving care provision and funding, has warmly welcomed the launch of the Government’s long-term approach to financial capability. The body has also congratulated Otto Thoresen on his appointment to lead a taskforce to research and design a national generic financial advice service. CCC’s chairman Dr Clive Bowman said the coalition urged the Government to take fully into account the needs of people having to confront the complexities of paying for long-term care. In view of their expertise, CCC members are willing to offer the Treasury and the task force what practical help they can in the specialist – and problematic – area of paying for care. Dr Bowman has written to Otto Thoresen and Ed Balls, economic secretary to the Treasury, offering assistance. CCC will also respond to the Treasury’s consultation.
