makes sense especially now with staff shortages. i used work in a care home and was short of staff then must be terrible.can i ask the assessment they are talking about is it for going into care or the social assessing whether carers are needed or both?We are in a pandemic.
where I work ( care provider) the sickness is running at 40 per cent.
If the government do not make changes, all the enterprising ambulance chasers will be filing for compensation next week. This will leave even less money for essential services in the future.
That doesn’t mean I am saying it is right, but no one has ever seen anything like this in their lifetimes.
The legislation is temporary - "These powers would only be used if demand pressures and workforce illness during the pandemic meant that local authorities were at imminent risk of failing to fulfil their duties and only last the duration of the emergency":is this just for the duration of the corona virus or all the time.
thankyou for that. makes it clearerWhat is important is that when this is over that we all push for a better system of care. Even apolitical doctors are speaking out and more needs to come from the social care sector so that our voice is heard.
I listened to World at One today on Radio 4, how can a system so badly broken respond to this? -it can't so tough decisions and plans have to be put in place.
I don't think any local authority will abandon its residents and those in need of care services, but they might have to change how they are delivered and even ration care.
