Assessment of health and social care in England

The Care Quality Commission has published its most recent annual assessment of the health and care service in England. It found that, although a lack of funding does not appear to have led to a dip in care quality, it has led to an increasing amount of unmet need where people simply cannot access services. It also raises a number of important points for autistic people, including diagnostic waiting times, lack of local mental health care, poor experiences of primary care and rising unmet needs.
