New report: NHS staff shortages put long-term vision for primary and community care at risk : The Health Foundation


A critical moment: NHS staffing, trends, retention and attrition

Our third annual NHS workforce report, published today, highlights that staff numbers are failing to keep pace with demand. There is ongoing deterioration in critical areas such as general practice, community care, nursing and mental health.

  1. While this is a shocking state of affairs, the crisis within Social Care is even more extreme, so please support the EPetition – Pay all employed carers the Living Wage, link https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/236151

    This Tory Government needs to not only put more money into the NHS, but also to stop austerity cuts and increase the Grants to Local Authorities so that they can fund Care Service Providers sufficiently to pay their Care staff at least the Living Wage of £9,00 per hour. To not do this could, in the near future, means that there is no Social Care within the UK, creating even more stress on persons in need of care and their own Family Carers, which in turn will increase the need for more care through the NHS.

    Please suppoort the Petition and then forward to any work colleagues, family and friends, your MP and your Local Councillors.
