The HPC's position statement on the White Paper 'Building a National Care Service'

Date of publication: 13/04/2010
 
Category: Position statement
 
 
Audience: Journalists and media
 
 
The HPC welcome the publication of the White Paper ‘Building the National Care Service’ and the Government’s approach to piloting the licensing of social care workers and healthcare support workers.

We look forward in due course to working with other stakeholders on the licensing model of regulation. We are committed to widening regulation to maximise public protection whilst not placing disproportionate burdens on the workforce.

We believe a licensing model can achieve this balance for support workers, and we look forward to the opportunity to pilot the scheme.
