The Scottish independent care home sector has grave concerns that the future of funding for the industry is largely dependant on an increasing Scottish budget from Westminster. This was the message delivered by Lord Sutherland, the new chairman of Scottish Care, at its 2004 Conference in Glasgow. Lord Sutherland said Scotland was reliant on money from Westminster, and the Care Commission report on the cost for care had largely been ignored with many businesses having to close in England. “Scottish Care¹s work over the last few years has ensured that this is not the case in Scotland, but we cannot rest,” Lord Sutherland said.
