    This is all very well.but earlier diagnosis has implications for resources. With the NHS in a financial crisis, and a population growing older what is the Department doing to ensure that everyone who needs medicines like Ebixia and Aricept will continue to get them if the local NHS trust can’t afford them? What financicial support is being given to carers and their families? Why is making funding for individual families not included in the Challenge? The Challenge needs to look ahead for the next 30 to 40 years .

    I read that the Department and DWP have asked or told the treasury not to proceed with implementting the Dilnot report. The country can look forward to many years of debt, and an unwillingness of government to spend and the inability of local authorities to pay. I urge the government to treat this as its top priririty otherwise no-one will get the level of care they deserve Pension values are falling in real terms so individuals will not be able to afford to a carer or pay the charges required by care homes.
