In October 2021 Rescare made a submission to the Parliamentary committee who were calling for evidence in terms of Protecting human rights in care settings.
The Committee were interested to hear the responses to the following questions:
- What human rights issues need to be addressed in care settings in England, beyond the immediate concerns arising from the Covid-19 pandemic?
- How effective are providers at respecting the human rights of people under their care?
- How effective are regulators in protecting residents from human rights breaches and in supporting patients and residents who make complaints about their care provider?
- What lessons need to be learned from the pandemic to prevent breaches of human rights legislation in future?
Dr Catherine Booth, Trustee at Rescare submitted on behalf of our members and also families associated with:
Holyrood care home Haywards Heath
Furlong Close in Wiltshire
