GMB@Angus Care

Dear Member
We have asked Angus Council what training, guidelines or additional resources have been provided to you in relation to the Coronavirus.
To say the response has been inadequate is an understatement, and you should be provided with more resources to protect yourselves.
A poster, or being handed out NHS guidelines is wholly inadequate when you are at the front line of delivering care to our most vulnerable.
Social care has seen a decade of cuts, resulting in what is now a precarious situation for you and those you look after. At the very least, those of you who care for our most vulnerable should be provided with the tools to look after yourselves.
Please let us know if you have had any specific training, or have any concerns by contacting Mags in the first instance, or calling us on 01382 225491.
