MND 'needs government funding'

The Commission on the Funding of Care and Support should allocate more money generated from taxation to motor neurone disease, one expert body has said. According to the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, the present system responds too slowly and also unsatisfactorily to the aggressive condition. John Kell policy manager at the MND Association said that the new commission must find a solution to bring new funds into the system. "We urge the Commission to find a solution that involves bringing new funds into the system, and to look again at using more funding from taxation," he added. The Commission on the Funding of Care and Support was established in July 2010 to look into how social care funding should be reformed as well as how people could pay for social care in the future. This comes after the government announced it is to inject £400 million into the mental health system, which aims to end the stigma surrounding certain conditions, treating them as equal to physical illness or injury.Find the nearest Barchester nursing home
