A Dangerous Plan

The government approach to recruiting staff for care homes from overseas has been described as "dangerous" by a leading provider.


As part of Home Office plans to cut migration levels, it is stopping overseas care workers from bringing their families with them to the UK.


Ruth French, operations director of Suffolk-based Stow Healthcare, said there was a major shortage of staff. There were 152,000 adult social care vacancies in England in 2022-23, equivalent to 9.9% of all roles.


Mrs French said about 25% of her staff were from overseas and described the change to government policy as a "real concern".
