Ruth Cooke, CEO Midland Heart comments on the Emergency Budget 2015:

“We need to work with our customers and partners to ensure that the budget changes do not adversely impact the most vulnerable in our society.  Part of that means building a unified approach that provides counsel to the Government on tailored solutions to the challenges we face.

“Providers like us offer quality, affordable housing and broader community based, person centred services for those in the greatest need - such as our good practice in helping people into work and innovative ideas that support a reshaped integrated care system.

“Together we must strive for greater recognition of the genuine benefits housing and care organisations can bring in building stronger communities and in tackling the NHS funding gap.”
