Our Thoughts: Budget 2017 for Social Care

Autumn Budget 2017

The Budget revealed that not a penny more is going to social care, despite the growing ageing population and demand for services.

The ‘national living wage’ (the minimum wage rate for the over 25s) will rise in April 2018, a 4.4 per cent increase from £7.50 to £7.83. This leaves care providers without additional funding but an increase in staff wages.


Mobile Care Monitoring for Care Providers

Mobile Care Monitoring (MCM) gives providers tools to make savings to social care services:

  • MCM helps to reduce hospital admission by monitoring fluids, as monitoring hydration reduces falls and UTIs.
  • More staff time can be allocated to caring for people at a service using MCM. Providers say that their care staff save over an hour a day, time that they otherwise would have spent on paperwork and administration tasks.
  • By recording at the point of care, MCM can accurately measure the health and well-being of service users, reducing the need to call ambulances, doctors and reducing the cost of these services.
  • MCM enables providers to best utilise staff costs, while improving the person-centred care that service users receive and their overall health.

As austerity continues, care providers are working within challenging economic conditions. Alleviating their burden of paperwork and increasing person-centred care is the aim of Mobile Care Monitoring.
