Reading now: 229

Dumfries and Galloway’s care at home sector lost around 250 staff in just 12 months. And more than 300 people were waiting for care at home packages to be put in place at one point last year.

The figures were outlined in Dumfries and Galloway’s Health and Social Care Partnership (DGHPSC’s) annual report for 2021/22 – a period bosses admit was “very tough”.

A section on recruitment reveals that attracting people to work in the sector – and keeping them there – “remains a considerable challenge”.

During 2021/22 “fewer people have taken up opportunities to work in care at home” with the workforce reduced by around 250 people.
