    The key findings of the report included that: A very small proportion of women had been taking folic acid before conception compared to the national average.

    This report from the Public Policy Projects recommends: 1. Qualitative research into the benefits that well-funded social care can have on quality of life, independency, isolation, relationships and general wellbeing. This should be combined with formal quantitative research into the impacts that properly funded social care can have on the NHS, including quantifiable information about hospital bed availability and the economic impact of the reduction of accidents and preventable illness. 2. There should be clear public guidelines on the social care system and how to access social ca

If these are breached by imposing racial conditionality on receiving care, healthcare professionals and organisations can refuse to tr
