ADASS warmly welcomes the Commons Health and Social Care Committee’s report on workforce burnout and resilience in the NHS and social care, particularly its call for publication of a people plan for social care as a matter of urgency and for objective, transparent and independently audited workforce projections for five-, 10- and 20-year periods.

It welcomes also the committee’s restatement of its call for a 10-year plan for adult social care.

Stephen Chandler, ADASS president, said: “The committee’s findings underline the need for the Government urgently to set out its proposals for the future of care and support, to provide sustainable funding and to produce a long-term plan for adult social care that values and rewards our colleagues for the incredible work that they do.”
