It is shocking to hear that the social care crisis means that people with no experience or qualifications are coming here to take on care work just for the money they can earn – Barbara Keeley

Barbara
Keeley MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Minister for Social Care
, commenting on
care staff coming in from Spain to cover the care crisis, said:

“Looking
after the care needs of older and vulnerable people is one of the most
important jobs in a caring society. It is shocking to hear that the social care
crisis means that people with no experience or qualifications are coming here
to take on care work just for the money they can earn.

“It
is time that Jeremy Hunt faced up to the crisis in social care his government
has created and made plans for a properly funded and trained care
workforce.”
