Based on the latest evidence of significant asymptomatic transmission in care homes we have been advised that providers should take all possible steps to minimise staff movement between care homes, to stop infection spreading between locations.
- We will not accept applications via Choose Care for those already employed in the Health or Social Care Sectors who are seeking roles in addition to their current employment.
- Anyone seeking to move from one health/social care organisation to another would need to relinquish their current position and undergo a 14 day quarantine (self isolation) to manage any risk of transmission. (This period would not be funded through Choose Care).
