Asking the PM about social care cuts and Liverpool

At Prime Minister’s Questions today, I asked Theresa May about cuts to social care, mentioning the situation at the Royal.

I asked:

“The dedicated and talented staff at the Royal Liverpool hospital’s A&E struggle to find the beds for sick people. 135 patients at the Royal are unable to be discharged solely because of government cuts to social care. When will the Government face up to its responsibilities and stop blaming GPs for the crisis it has created itself?”

The question and the PM’s reply can be seen here:

Liverpool has lost 58% of its budget and more cuts are being demanded by government.

This situation is out of control.

The Government must act immediately to stop more suffering.
