Professor Martin Green, chief executive of Care England said: “We are using the coming months to prepare for the JR hearing, the relevance of which is greater than ever as the costs of providing good quality care continue to rise.

“We are seeing care homes close and homecare contracts handed back in Essex and across the country. Essex County Council were awarded an extra £24m by Central Government and took the opportunity to raise the Precept to support the Social Care sector, but it is evident the Council is not passing this cash on to Providers.”
