Statement for Laing and Buisson on 15-min slots

ADASS President David Pearson said: “Any care arrangements should preserve with compassion people’s dignity and respect, and we cannot and do not condone the inappropriate use of short periods of time to cater for people’s personal care needs. However, the vast majority of 15 minute calls are made to check on people’s well- being and prompt the taking of medication.

“Social care has been required to make 26 per cent savings (£3.5bn) over the last four years. This has required us to reduce services for older and disabled people. Funding for adult social care needs to be protected in line with the funding available to the health service to ensure that people receive the quantity and quality of service they need.”
