Unite Social Care Forum

FEBRUARY 15, 2018

Unite believes in an integrated health and social care system, but demands minimum commissioning standards on both cost and staffing levels that would enable employers to retain experienced employees with decent wages and conditions, fair and reasonable working patterns, job security and professional training and standards, while simultaneously protecting the quality and social care for users. We want to make a difference in social care.

The NHS and social care systems are already under huge strain due to underfunding, privatisation and staff shortages.

The impact of Brexit in the UK could trigger crisis across the health and social cares systems with staff shortages, increased service demand, losses of science funding and inter- state cooperation.

The competitive tendering process by which social care, and support service providers bid for contracts, is damaging standards leading to an environment in which low cost offers can triumph over high quality care and lead to a race to the bottom for those working in social care as well as for service users, their families and communities.
