Social Work TV (not Eastenders)
YES – we have a TV channel of our own, well sort of – it’s an online social work video library with so far only 27 videos but a good start nonetheless. While I am sure it will not be as excruciating exciting as Eastenders I think it’s a Good Thing. It is being run by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCiE) and while funded by the DoH is editorially independent. On the down side, there is a video introduction to the service by Phil Hope MP – (£43,674 excess expenses paid back) – the Care Services Minister.
