Lincolnshire Care Association responds to Care Quality Commission’s State of Care annual report

In response to the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC’s) annual assessment of the state of health and social care in England and the press statement by Ian Trenholm, Chief Executive of the CQC, Melanie Weatherley MBE, Chair of the Lincolnshire Care Association said:

“Ian is right to be concerned about staffing issues in the care sector. The health and care workforce are exhausted and depleted – which has clear implications for the vital care they deliver. He talks of a tsunami of unmet need on its way. I would go as far as to say that the tsunami is in sight and we have no time to wait. We’re seeing rising vacancy rates in Lincolnshire and this could lead to many families being without paid carers to support their loved ones this winter.

We welcome the Government recruitment campaign launching next month to attract more people into the sector, but feel that we need to start now before winter really sets in. We are calling on the local population to consider a career in care. It is a rewarding and purpose driven profession with lots of opportunities. There are hundreds of vacancies across the county in a wide range of roles – many being flexible so you can work the hours that suit you. Lincolnshire Care Association can help people find vacancies so please get in touch.”
