MAC say social care needs policy wider than migrationMAC say social care needs policy wider than migration

The Migration Advisory Committee have issued its final report on EEA Migration in the UK, with recommendations for post-Brexit immigration policy. The MAC suggest a system that does not give preferential access to EU citizens, and has a less-restrictive regime for highly-skilled workers than lower-skilled workers. The MAC were unconvinced of the need for a migration scheme for low-skilled workers, except seasonal agricultural workers. The MAC said they expected some sectors to lobby extensively against this. They were 'seriously concerned about social care but this sector needs a policy wider than just migration policy to fix its many problems.'

'Unacceptable' to allow social care services to close - response of the Cavendish Coalition of health and social care organisations, of which UKHCA is a member: http://www.nhsemployers.org/media-centre/2018/09/cavendish-mac-response
