Turning Point's Fiona Ritchie responds to the 2017 Autumn Budget

News item posted: 24 November 2017

Fiona Ritchie, Managing Director at health and social care organisation Turning Point, said:

“I'm dismayed that social care yet again received no mention in the Autumn Budget.

"Support services including for people with learning disabilities ease pressure on the NHS. They also save the health service money. 

"But social care is facing significant cutbacks. Investment is needed urgently otherwise the crisis will deepen further."
