Panel Discussion – Care Workforce Crisis: What Next?

07 Jul 2022
Keynote

The care workforce crisis remain a huge challenge for the sector. The impact of Brexit, Covid-19, vaccination policy, coupled with increases in the cost of living have all come together to form a perfect storm, leaving the sector with in excess of 105,000 vacancies. Evidence of wellbeing challenges which include Mental health and physical burnout, staff have been leaving for better pay and conditions and less stressful roles in retail and hospitality. The increased pressures around the vaccination policy lost the sector circa 40,000 people who chose other employment option. Where do we go from here? Our panel of experts will discuss what should be done to solve the crisis and how we should act now before it’s too late. Join us for what will surely be an interesting discussion on how we can move forward from this crisis.
