The care sector: collateral damage, second class citizens and a slap for carers- COVID and Brexit | Care Industry News


Campaigners say a Government decision to deny overseas care workers a visa to work in Britain has robbed the social care sector of vital staff to look after older and vulnerable people.

  1. The care industry look as though they have been listening for much of what I have been proposing for quite a number of years appear to be being promoted in this article.

    “For the Government to say that people already here can remain and provide “really important care to the elderly and the vulnerable” but then say no more can come, beggars belief.

    “This hastens the need to merge the two together so that both can be treated equally.”

    This exactly what I was says last year, when I was promoting my petition, Pay all employed carers the Living Wage.

    For why should the NHS be free for all at point of delivery, when Social Care is not, surely the delivery of all forms of care should be equal, especially when social care is providing for the needs of the most vulnerable within the UK.

    Now I am promoting a new petition, Solve the crisis in Social Care, https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/solve-the-crisis-in-social-care

    It is essential that the crisis is solved, for not to do so, could well mean the demise of social Care within the UK. If that occurs all these vulnerable people will only have the Health Service (NHS) to rely on. The NHS is already overstretched as was and is evident in the current COVID-19 pandemic, which nearly brought the NHS to a stand still. This could still be so if the expected COVID-19 second wave occurs this Winter, when there will also be instances of influenza, which in itself will cause problems within the NHS.

    This Government needs to see that any delay is solving the crisis in Social Care will create major problems, which could not only be the demise of Social Care, but also the NHS.

    Support for my current petition is essential for the continuation of any care within the UK.

    Please therefore support the petition by signing and then sharing, https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/solve-the-crisis-in-social-care
