Dear supporter of the Campaign for Mental Health Services in North Norfolk,
It has been brought to our attention that a Parliamentary Inquiry into the long-term funding of adult social care is under way, and that they want responses by Thursday 15th April. This inquiry has not been given any publicity, meaning that there is now a very tight deadline for submitting responses.
However, we do think it is important that as many people as possible respond, in view of the terrible experiences of social care staff and service users during the pandemic, which is closely connected to the current crisis in mental health. So please go to web page below and reply directly (terms of reference further below in this email). If you want, you can send a copy of your response to me at this email address so that we can use it for our campaigning, but you will need to respond directly to the inquiry yourself.
Martin Booth, Chair Campaign for Mental Health Services in North Norfolk

- How can the adult social care market be incentivised to compete on quality and/or innovation?
