Sir Ed Davey on reforms for carers: ‘If you care about the NHS, you must care about care’

On how to convince staff to stay in the NHS, Sir Ed said: “First of all, you’ve got to treat them fairly. And I don’t think the government has, certainly people I speak just don’t feel like they’re being treated fairly.

“They need to try to incentivise people who’ve left to come back by showing that they actually care and that they will be properly looked after.

“I think there should be more visas for healthcare workers. We know the NHS has been hugely benefited from staff from overseas.”

Sir Ed added: “If the Prime Minister resigned it would improve retention and recruitment in the health service, because I think he’s lost the trust of the NHS workers.”
