PJ Care represents the care arena alongside Philip Hammond

Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry shortly after the 2010 general election, The Parlimentary Review’s September release has become a key fixture in the political calendar. The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector, and is aimed at leading policy makers and executives within the care arena.

Neil Russell, Executive Chair of PJ Care, features alongside The Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Rt Hon Philip Hammond, and a small number of outstanding organisations in the Care edition. The articles in the Review act as both a blueprint for success and template for reform, and is sent out to tens of thousands of leading policy makers.

Neil was compelled to submit an article after expressing his concerns to local MPs at the injustice of how care budgets were allocated and critically how current NHS policies regarding how to manage patients requiring specialist care requires urgent reform.

“More frequently than ever, people with specialist needs are being given a much lower level of care than they require and this is having a massive knock on effect across the nation and more importantly the individual in need of care.”

The article written by Neil is illustrated with case studies and recent examples of instances of where patients have been removed from their care before their recovery is complete due to budget constraints which has set back their rehabilitation, and in some cases has resulted in unintended but serious consequences for the individual.

Director of The Parlimentary Review, Daniel Yossma, said: “Without these organisations’ input, our aims of spreading expert knowledge and raising standards simply would not be achievable. They’ll be a hard act to follow and next year’s organisations will have to be on the top of their game to meet the challenge.”
