The Reader: Boris Johnson must step up and reform our social care

No tears will be shed for 2020 and as we start the new year, we all pray for better times ahead.

My hope for 2021 is that we finally get the proper reform of social care we have been promised for so long.

Covid-19 exposed a sector in crisis and vulnerable to such a dreadful virus. The death toll in care and nursing homes is rising and it would have been much worse but for the amazing response of those working in the care sector, who have performed miracles. Those caring for the most vulnerable in society deserve social care reform to bring them parity with NHS care providers.

Now that Brexit is done Boris Johnson must get social care done with the same amount of energy used to negotiate the deal with the EU. There are no more excuses and prevarication.
