MPs Back “Negative Register” of Care Workers, Following Abuse Scandals

Researching Reform

Community Care reports this morning that MPs in the Commons health committee have backed proposals made by The Health and Care Profession Council’s (HCPC), that a register should exist detailing all those social workers who have been deemed unfit to work in adult social care, after investigation. The move would, it is argued, offer greater protection to service users.

We think this is a good idea, but we would like to see this extended to those social workers and CAFCASS officers in child social care who have also been investigated and deemed to be unfit to practice. If we consider it right to protect service users, then we must consider it imperative to protect vulnerable children who are at risk of abuse too.
