Stopping movement of staff between care settings

Plans to restrict the movement of care staff.

IN THIS ARTICLE

It wants your views on plans to minimise the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) infections by making residential and nursing care home providers restrict the movement of care staff. The government now wants to make regulations that would temporarily modify regulation 18 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 which deals with staffing. This would mean residential and nursing care home providers in England must restrict the movement of staff providing personal care or nursing care in their services.

This consultation by the Department of Health and Social Care runs from 13 November until 23 November 2020.
