One group of protesters chanted outside Cambridgeshire County Council's offices in Cambridge.

Cambridgeshire gets £2.32m to offset NHS winter pressures

Cambridgeshire County Council is to receive a one-off payment of £2.32m "to help alleviate pressures on the NHS this winter" - to pay for discharging patients home quickly from hospital beds.

The money is part of a £240m funding programme announced by Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, earlier this month.

A council spokesman said the funding came at a time when adult social care across the country faced "unprecedented pressures".

Councillor Anna Bailey, chairwoman of the council's Adults Committee, said: "We are focused on increasing the capacity available in the community to discharge people from hospital who need support to return home – but this takes time to achieve.

"We need government to recognise there is a substantial funding shortfall in Cambridgeshire and that our services are under unprecedented strain all year long. Cambridgeshire needs a fairer funding deal."
