A lot as and is being said about Brexit, some true and some not so true.
What es known is that whether the UK stayed in the EU or not changes would have to occur to one degree or another, as nothing stays still.
If we had stayed in the EU is well known that there would be much more political union to an extent that it would become a United Stares of Europe with more and more decisions being imposed on Member countries by the European Commission, maybe that to all intensive purposes that the Member countries could cease to exist in respect of decision making in most instances.
No one in the UK agreed to any political union, except the Government of the day and especially one Prime Minister Tony Blair, who made these decisions without referring to the |UK population through a National Referendum by a direct question, only through General Elections on a lengthy Election manifesto, which included many points.
Only in 1975 and 2016 were there referendums 1975 for whether we stayed in the EEC no mention of the EU and political union and 2016 on whether we left or stayed in the EU by a simple majority. 1975 result was to stay in the EEC, but eventually it was changed through Blair and the European commission to the EU and 2016 to leave the EU. How to leave was decided by the then Tory Governments and the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
With the NHS and social care, it was decided that doctors and nurses could still come to the UK as long as they qualified to do so and in most instances the salary requirement would be met. However, re care workers due to the abysmal pay rates the salary requirements would never be met, unless care workers were made a special case, which was promised but never materialised.
So Brexit and lack of commitment of the Tory Government meant social care was not committed to, which is not surprising for no Government to date has made the commitment to social care that is needed, hence not only the lack of care workers, but the required financing of social care.
So blaming Brexit, totally, is wrong as many Governments have to shoulder the blame to differing degrees.
