A new report, published by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) today, shows that more people than ever before work in Scotland’s social services. There are some 206,400 people in the workforce, which makes up approximately 7.8% of all Scottish employment or one in 13 jobs.
A new report, published by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) today, reveals that 94 staff left the mental health officer (MHO) workforce between December 2018 and 2019. The report also shows that although the number of local authorities reporting an MHO shortfall increased to 27, the number of full time MHOs needed to address the shortfall decreased to 49.
Fifty-five extra full time mental health officers (MHOs) are needed to meet shortfalls in staffing, a new report published by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) reveals. All but eight of Scotland’s local authorities reported an MHO shortfall in the 2018 Mental Health Officers’ Report published today.
