Re Social care applications to Ofsted


From 1 April 2024, a health declaration signed by your GP is no longer required for

children’s social care applicants. If you are a social care applicant, e.g. Registering

Manager, Responsible Individual, etc., you must still declare your current health using

the children’s social care health form. However, you do not need to send the form to

your GP as part of your application to be registered as or connected to a children’s

social care provider.


This is a welcome development as the disclosure of any previous health issues, if

significant, is, of course, something that could be addressed via your disclosed work

record, references, etc. No reason has been given for this decision other than ‘to

streamline the process.’ However, EHP Children’s Homes Consultancy has always

believed that the disclosure of a person’s entire health history is an intrusion into their

personal information.



Is your consultant continually ‘horizon scanning’ to keep your potential business up to

date?
