How will Brexit impact the Care Sector

Brexit

With the Brexit deadline fast approaching, a lot of uncertainty and important issues are still yet to be resolved. We take a look at how Brexit could impact the health and social care, especially in the recruitment section of the industry.

Brexit has already had an impact on the health and social care industry, mostly when it comes to the recruitment and retention of EUworkers, meaning shortages of staff is an ever growing issue for care managers.

The UK has a workforce of around 1.3 million, with an estimated 104,000 (8%) of these workers coming from other EU countries. Added to this, the government’s future immigration system which sets the minimum salary threshold at £30,000 will exclude many social care and health jobs, which will impact on the already stretched sector, with 1 in 11 care worker roles unfilled!

Retention is key to help to address the in balance so you need to start thinking about how you can retain your key personnel before any exit plans are started.  One way to help with retention of staff is to look at benefits outside of the salary, adding health plans and cash plans that will give staff the ability to manage dental, optical and day to day living costs and help to attract more British nationals into the sector.
