We have received the attached letter from the Cabinet Secretary and Cosla. It relates to those workers in social care services who come from the EEA.
Any efforts to address the uncertainty brought about by the Brexit process are to be welcomed as I know from many of our provider organisations that some individuals have decided already to leave their employment. I recognise that this will only go some way to giving the reassurance which is necessary and desired.
May I also take this opportunity of wishing you, all care staff, residents and those who use social care services across Scotland a relaxing and renewing Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2019.
Dr Donald Macaskill
