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.
