The charity Age UK wants the enforced care worker training to teach staff how to notify authorities about suspected abuse or the poor treatment of the elderly by colleagues.

The push for training comes after a series of scandals in which elderly and disabled adults have been mistreated in NHS hospitals and private care homes.
