As a local authority social worker: completely agree social care is under resourced, but in my experience, delays in hospital dx are often about poor coordination within the hospital or community health services not being in place- l would be interested in stats of how often it is actually social care holding things up- it's easy to blame the social worker! re increased demand for social care by working age adults: possible reasons are; social inequality and it's impact on mental health, increased recognition of autism, medical advances meaning more people with serious conditions surviving to adulthood. thanks for your podcast- always interesting! clare
