Last month Panorama’s Care in Crisis documentaries threw a stark light on the funding crisis facing the care sector. Now that the dust is settling and attention is already being diverted, it is important to ensure that the issues raised, and still very much present, are none the less addressed.
It’s always very rewarding coming away from an interview with a customer I am writing a case study for. Working mostly at a desk, behind the scenes and largely removed from day to day contact with customers, it’s reassuring to see the PASSsystem up and running out there in the real world, displaying on their dashboards as I walk into their offices.
From risk prevention and care management to better care home design, supply chain management and recruitment and retention, the benefits of predictive analysis resulting in data innovation is manifold for the care sector.
everyLIFE’s take on the Skills for Care national recruitment campaign workshop for social care – ‘Every day is different!’
With a turnover rate of 30% and over 110,000 vacancies at any one time, there is no doubt that we need to attract more people into adult social care. By 2035 Skills for Care estimates that we’ll need another 650,000 people by 2035. Working in adult social care is rewarding, unique and makes a difference every single day which is why we invite you to get involved with the campaign to improve recruitment in adult social care and join us at this event.
