Families will be able to visit care homes again – Liz Kendall

Liz Kendall MP, Labour’s Shadow Social Care Minister, responding to the government announcement that visit to care homes will reopen within days, said:

“It is good to hear families will soon be able to visit care homes again. This is something Labour has been calling for weeks.

“It has been a very worrying time for people with loved ones in care homes and so it is vital that care homes get clear guidance, PPE and access to regular testing to ensure visits are safe.

“Families in Leicester will be upset and disappointed that this doesn’t apply to them, which is why we must ensure Leicester gets resources, data and other support needed to bring infection rates down.”
