In health and social care, there is a growing understanding of the link between workforce experience and outcomes for patients and people who draw on care and support – not just in terms of their own experiences of care but in multiple quality measures including clinical outcomes.
One of the recommendations from that report was to extend the NHS Staff Survey into social care. The aim would be to fill the information gap around the experiences of the adult social care workforce nationally, providing data comparable to that available for the NHS. But is this what is needed, and would it be workable? We put those questions to the sector itself, through a roundtable discussion focusing mainly on care homes and home-based care for older people. This briefing summarises the themes that arose on the day.
