Elderly care should be under the NHS

The organisation and funding of elderly care has got missed out of the NHS. Bevan’s key idea was that we should share the risks of ill health. We are family. If you get ill we will club together and make sure you get back to health or if that’s not possible we will look after you. ……. unless you are old – we say now!

Wrong. We should put this right.
