Covid-19: Taking care of the care sector

Editor Tim Probert talks to National Care Association executive chair Nadra Ahmed about the short and longer-term implications of Covid-19 on the sector

TCHE:How concerned are you about care homes potentially going out of business as a result of the pandemic?

Ahmed:We were warning about this some time ago because our sector has been, for almost the past two decades, chronically underfunded. 

One of the reasons for that is our sector has taken on more healthcare responsibility. We are not just looking after people who are retired ladies and gentlemen. We are looking after people with complex healthcare needs and therefore the funding that has been coming through has kind of missed the point.
