Care Quality Commission are encouraging young people to feedback on care: As part of their #DeclareYourCare campaign, this month the Care Quality Comission (CQC) are encouraging young people to feedback on care. Their research has revealed that young people (16-24) don’t raise concerns about their care due to fears of being seen as a troublemaker, or because they don’t think it’ll make a difference. Young people are also more likely to have experienced poor care when using mental health services.

Government Consultation on Measures to Reduce Health Related Job Loss: Each year more than 100,000 people leave their job following a period of sickness absence lasting at least four weeks. Offering flexibility, early support and occupational health advice are the key to successful retention in the workplace. Many employers already see the case to invest in health and wellbeing. But some, particularly smaller ones, might not have the knowledge or time to support their employees with health conditions, even when they want to. The Government’s consultation seeks to address this challenge.
You can help shape future plans in this exciting area by accessing the consultation via this link, which will be open until 7th October 2019. Your views will be invaluable in helping Government to understand the implications of any reforms and how any potential changes can be best implemented in the future. This will be vital in ensuring Government provides employers and employees with the most effective support going forward.
