This briefing from the National Minimum Data Set for Social Care concerns turnover and vacancy rates of the social care workforce. The briefing shows high turnover rates across the sector, particularly in domiciliary where the turnover rate is 24.9%. Such high turnover rates are damaging to the provision of social care and the experience of service users as it results in a lack of continuity and personalisation of care.
