89. DOING RIGHT BY OLDER PEOPLE: free personal care for all

Hello! Is it time to extend the principles of the NHS to social care for the elderly? We discuss proposals for universal free personal care. Joyce Yendole tells us about her experience in Scotland, where personal and nursing care is already free for over 65s. Professor Pat Thane explains what the history of social care tells us about the problems we face today. Then Harry Quilter-Pinner talks us through IPPR’s recent report arguing for social care free at the point of need.
