Extra £1.5m for adult social care in East Riding
The total of additional funding from the Government for adult social care in the East Riding, announced last month as part of a national package, has this week been revealed.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council will receive £1,445,968, a figure welcomed by local MP Graham Stuart. He told us: “Winter is and always will be an immensely busy time for the NHS, especially when it comes to taking care of our elderly. The £1.5 million for East Riding and the further £650 million nationally will go a long way in helping to ensure our already great NHS can cope with the additional pressure by freeing up bed space in hospitals and getting patients home quicker with their own tailored care plans to fit their individual needs.
“Our NHS staff, Doctors and nurses already do incredible work across the UK all year round. But this money will help alleviate the pressure on them during their busiest times and allow them to focus on urgent care.”
