ABSTRACT
The article presents the views of Stephen Burke, outgoing head of older people's advice charity Counsel and Care, on the impact of the cuts in British government funding on adult care. He believes that adult care system is already in crisis and the estimated 25% cuts from government funding from 2011-2015 might lead to a meltdown. However, he opines that the abolition of primary care trusts might help in generating efficiency savings from joining-up health and social care.
