Soaring cost of long-term care threatens to ‘overwhelm’ NHS

January 4, 2014 7:24 pm

Dr Martin McShane, NHS England’s National Director for People with Long-Term Conditions, has warned that the increasing number of people with long-term medical conditions such as diabetes and dementia threatens to overwhelm the NHS. Dr McShane said the challenges posed by such patients are so considerable that they represent the ‘healthcare equivalent to climate change’ and must force the NHS to undertake a major rethink of how it cares for such patients.
