The BBC Radio 4 Today programme highlighted this morning the particular problem in recruitment in Stockport Council, managed by the Labour party, based on a report by Independent Age which pointed out 2 out of 3 care homes in the North West of England are inadequate or require improvement. Another report, by the charity Skills for Care brought up that 1 in 20 jobs within care remain vacant.
In addition commenting on reports that more than 900 adult social care workers a day quit their job in England last year, Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat Shadow Health Secretary, said:
“The NHS and the care system is lurching from crisis to crisis. There is a massive risk that with the Prime Minister’s obsessive focus on pursuing a hard Brexit it is tying up the government so that it is chronically mismanaging other sectors.
“Theresa May’s continued failure to guarantee the future of EU citizens in the UK is only going to create a bigger workforce crisis in the years to come.”
