BBC figures: 900 adult care workers leaving the profession every day

Home / News / News from Westminster / BBC figures: 900 adult care workers leaving the profession every day

11 April 2017

Social care is in danger of collapse, according to the Chair of the UK Homecare Association, after the news that, last year, every day more than 900 adult social care workers quit the profession.

In 2015, I was proud to stand on a platform to integrate social care into the NHS, joining up care from the home to the hospital, funded through levies on big tobacco companies and hedge funds. In Parliament, I have been calling on the Government to do more, not least because systematic under-funding of social care is putting hospitals under even more pressure.

UNISON has been campaigning to end the scandal of fifteen minute care visits and has produced this film.
