Many of the services used by people with Learning Disabilities use Agencies at least some of the time.
A sub-group may be arranged to discuss this important subject - click here for details.

I think some Agency staff are better than regular staff because they know they will only get work if they hve a good reputation.

Agency staff don't know the service users. They will never be as good as permanent staff.

It depends on how long they are there. The important thing is to avoid short stay staff - Permanent or Agency. Agency staff should stay for a minimum of 4 weeks - unless it's for sickness or emergency cover. Can the Partnership Board get Adult Care Services to make that a regular policy ?
