Domiciliary care

Pace of registration for staff under fire
Elder abuse campaigners and politicians have hit out at the General Social Care Council's recommendation not to fast-track domiciliary care workers on to the social care register.

A consultation paper published this week by the GSCC proposes registering social care managers next. This is despite an inquiry by the House of Commons' health select committee into elder abuse earlier in the year calling for domiciliary care workers to be registered as a priority.
Liberal Democrat older people spokesperson Sandra Gidley said it was disappointing domiciliary care seemed to be slipping down the agenda.
