DH responds to campaign on compulsory training for healthcare assistants


27 / 8 / 2013 2.44pm

The Department for Health (DH) has issued its response to 38 Degrees today. The Government maintains that compulsory statutory regulation is not the answer for support workers, as it is no substitute for good leadership at every level and proper management of services. Employers and other stakeholders need to continue to promote and develop these attributes.

You can read the DH press release on its website here.

Next steps

We are currently working with the DH team to look at the recommendations from the Cavendish review and will keep you informed as this work develops.

We also have further information on our website, where you can find out more about how employers are developing the skills and competences of their support workforce.
