The Cavendish Coalition– which represents UK health and social care groups – says it is gravely concerned regarding immigration proposals which they say will seriously affect staff shortages in Care Homes. They claim that the current proposals would not allow enough overseas workers to be recruited, it has warned. They argue that the restriction on immigration forced by a salary cap of £26,500 would further endanger the staffing levels in the Care Home sector
The government said immigration is “not the answer to the challenges in the social care sector”.
However, the head of the Migration Advisory Committee has stated how the Cavendish crowd can solve their problems. He said “Pay them more”!
