UKMFA Open Letter to Care Home Managers re Inhuman Visitor Restriction Policies

12/05/22

UKMFA have written a letter to Care Home Managers to demand the removal of ALL restrictions on the visitation of care home residents with immediate effect, in line with the Government’s lifting of restrictions and guidance for the care sector published on the 31 March 2022, which states clearly: “There should not normally be any restrictions to visits in or out of the care home".

We demand that no person must suffer such a cruel and inhuman policy going forward, no matter what the circumstances, and that the right to receive healthy visitors in care homes must be upheld at all times. We also request that visitors should not themselves be required to be subjected to medical interventions (including diagnostic tests, face masks, vaccinations) as a condition of visitation. Individuals who are ill should be trusted to make responsible decisions themselves to refrain from visiting while symptomatic, as has been normal practice for decades.

Please send this letter to any care home that you know is still implementing these cruel restrictions on their residents and families, and forward it to your MP and local media to raise awareness of this important issue.
