Please find attached a letter to everyone working in social care from the Secretary of State. I’m sure many of you have been wondering when social care would be recognised alongside those working in the NHS. The message does now seem to be getting through and social care workers are being included in dedicated shopping times etc in the larger supermarket retailers. Make sure you have your ID badge with you at all times, especially if you are travelling to and from any work related activates so that you can evidence the role you have, should you need to and if you need to make use of the dedicated shopping times available.
We will be sending out a wider staff briefing today to let you know where we are up to in terms of service delivery and the plans that are in place regarding our staff.
