“We need to ensure that finding a fair and sustainable solution is a key priority for the next government," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Health Secretary.

Commenting on today’s National Audit Office report on the Government’s Dementia Strategy, Norman Lamb said:

“This report shows that Labour is still failing dementia patients and their families despite recent changes.

“Tackling the dementia time-bomb is going to require a solution which addresses the crisis in the social care system and the lack of research funding.

“We need to ensure that finding a fair and sustainable solution is a key priority for the next government.”
