Protecting human rights in care settings
The Joint Committee on Human Rights is examining human rights concerns in care settings in England.
The inquiry will cover:
- What human rights issues need to be addressed in care settings, beyond the immediate concerns arising from the Covid-19 pandemic?
- How effective are providers at respecting the human rights of people under their care?
- How effective are regulators in protecting residents from human rights breaches and in supporting patients and residents who make complaints about their care provider?
- What lessons need to be learned from the pandemic to prevent breaches of human rights legislation in the future?
The deadline for the call for evidence is 2 November.
