social business for urban development
It beggars belief really…on one hand the government has the gall to blame providers for not paying travel time and on the other hand, the entire government social care system relies on contracting with the lowest cost providers and no councils that I know of are paying travel time or even travel cost. I wish I was at the conference to be able to say to social care Minister, Normal Lamb, that if you want care workers to be paid travel time, then pay them travel time. This problem does not exist outside you, you are the very cause of it.
“Speaking at Skills for Care’s annual conference on Thursday, Lamb said he was looking into what could be done to make those care providers who do not pay for travel time “cough up the money they owe”, as well as the possibility of naming and shaming the worst offenders.”
Cough it up yourself, Norman, it’s a very simple solution.
