Health Care Assistants/Carers
Health Care Assistants/Carers play a vital role in our health sector but their contribution is often undervalued and not fully recognised. The recent ERSI report into the future needs of healthcare workers, highlighted that it was amongst Health Care Assistants/Carers where we would face the biggest increase in demand. A staggering 54% increase. In addition, the Department of Health’s own Health Service Capacity Review recommends and 50% increase in the primary care workforce.
Hospitals, Home Care, Nursing Homes, Residential, Hospice Care staff and other settings have never been in such demand, time to look at why there is a demand!
