SIR - With the departure of Jeremy Hunt as Health and Social Care Secretary, there's no doubt that Matt Hancock is inheriting a sector in crisis.

With his economics background and time spent in the Public Accounts Committee, I hope Hancock is more willing to find economic solutions to the social care – and thus wider health – sector than his predecessor.

We're looking to Hancock to steady the ship with a robust plan that finally puts adult social care at the top of the agenda, and tackles the alarming health inequalities that people with autism and learning disabilities face daily.

Social care is all about people it supports. Hancock would make a strong start by tackling the pressing issues of the LEDER report and the Sleep-Ins crisis. Then all eyes will be on the autumn budget for an indication of how he plans to reform health and social care. At Dimensions we have a clear set of goals for ensuring people with learning disabilities receive the best possible care. Our door is open to working with the government to make this a reality.
