BASW UK call for evidence: Human rights in care settings

We are looking to hear from members about your experiences of human rights in care settings

BASW UK is planning a response to an inquiry on human rights in care settings, which has been launched by the UK Parliament’s Joint Committee on Human Rights.

We are looking to hear from members about their experiences of human rights in care settings - with particular focus on the following issues:

  • What human rights issues need to be addressed in care settings beyond the immediate concerns arising from the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • How effective are providers at respecting the human rights of people under their care?
  • How effective are regulations in protecting residents from human rights breaches and in supporting patients and residents who make complaints about their care provider?
  • What lessons need to be learned from the pandemic to prevent breaches of human rights legislation in future?

If you would like to contribute your thoughts and experiences on the above questions, please contact Kerri.Prince@basw.co.uk before 15 October 2021. Please include the nation that you work in alongside any contribution.
