Gale's Westminster View – Social Care and Healthcare

GALE'S WESTMINSTER VIEW – SOCIAL CARE AND HEALTHCAREFor far too long successive Governments of all political persuasions have failed to constructively and definitively address the related  issues of social care for the elderly and the disabled and healthcare at both primary (GP) and Secondary (Hospital) levels and to find the means to adequately if not generously fund both.

Gale's Westminster View – March 2021

westminsterThe phoney `vaccine war `is a fig leaf designed to obscure the failure on the part of Commissioner Von Der Leyen and the EU to roll out an effective vax programme while the UK Government notches up a significant post-Cummings success in its approach to the pandemic. Less attractive is the Government`s offer of aone-per-cent pay increase as a `reward` to NHS staff for their service on the front line.

westminsterSTOP PRESS!!! A line in the Budget statement suggests that the Government may be going to honour its pledge to grant “votes for Life” in General Elections in the next session of Parliament. We await the Queen`s Speech with interest!
