Care homes `struggling to recruit and retain staff´

15 January 2019 – Daily Mail

A new joint report from the Care Inspectorate and the social services regulator Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) has found that over half of care homes for adults and older people (including care at home services), have vacancies.

The statistics are based on the returns from 89% of all around 8,000 social care services across Scotland in 2017, excluding childminders, which employed an estimated 179,1501 staff.

A total of 38% of social care services reported vacancies, up two percentage points on 2016.
