Panorama; Crisis in Care

The engaging two-part documentary which focused on Somerset, highlighted national and local challenges for care providers in meeting the needs of people in the County. We are proud to have contributed alongside providers and others, to ensure that the reality of care was exposed. See the attached press release and a link below to BBC coverage of the issues, (the piece begins at 1.21.00). The RCPA will be taking forward the issues raised by the programme with SCC and our members.
