Abstract

The shortage of social care workforce and the pressure that the social care sector is under predates the COVID-19 pandemic. However, since Brexit, international recruitment of health professionals including those working within social care has become problematic. The added challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic has further affected attracting, recruiting and retaining staff within the social care sector. We aimed to explore the evidence for innovations to attract, recruit and retain social care workers and understand which factors influence turnover within the UK context.
