In 2021, around 700 people across Britain took part in online conversations to talk about their experiences of health and care. Here’s what people working (paid and unpaid) in health or care said about their experiences.
- Staff and carers feel overstretched, undervalued and taken for granted
- Health and care staff need more time to do their jobs justice
- Carers shared having to go into debt and staff shared concerns about pay
- Staff and carers are negatively affected by disjoints and gaps in the systems.
