Call for better incentives for domestic workforce and clear migration routes for social care, post BrexitCall for better incentives for domestic workforce and clear migration routes for social care, post Brexit

A new report on Brexit and the UK health and social care workforce calls for incentives for the domestic workforce and for there to be clear, reasonable routes for immigration both during and after Brexit. The report:

  • Acknowledges that current workforce issues may worsen post-Brexit and says the UK and devolved governments must review their workforce planning, and recognise the needs of the whole system, not just the NHS;
  • Calls for more return to work schemes, and access to training in social care, to improve the attractiveness of the job;
  • Suggests that any future immigration system should operate at all levels of skill and salary levels and be uncomplicated to operate;
  • Recommends the Home Office should guarantee that its settled status programme for EU nationals will be honoured if there is a no-deal Brexit;
  • Says all levels of Government should work together to review career routes within social care.

'Brexit and the health and social care workforce in the UK' a report by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, November 2018, commissioned by the Cavendish Coalition of health and social care organisations (which includes UKHCA).

There is a blog by Dr Heather Rolfe, one of the report authors, on the challenges for social care at: https://www.niesr.ac.uk/blog
