Union to consult members in HC-One homes over CCTV

The GMB, the union for staff at HC-One the third largest care home provider in Britain, are to consult their members in HC-One care homes about the possible use of CCTV  cameras.

It comes as tonight’s BBC Panorama programme will reveal ill treatment of residents by care staff.

Justin Bowden, GMB national officer for the care sector, said: “Cameras in care homes is a highly emotive subject which provokes understandably strong views and such a big step requires very careful consideration.

"HC-One is wise to be approaching this with caution and as part of a wide scale consultation. GMB will be talking to our 6,000 members in 227 HC-One care homes – the experts in providing care to the vulnerable and elderly – and seeking their views”.
