Scottish Government consults on National Health and Care Standards 20/11/2016

The Scottish Government is consulting on draft National Health and Care Standards which apply to all health and social care services, not just regulated services, and extend to planning, assessment, commissioning, and delivery of care from the perspective of the person using care.

The seven new care standards replace the 23 previous sets of standards for specific services. Developed with input from service users and with a social justice approach, the draft standards use 'I' statements, for example, 'Standard 1.17 - I am supported to live in my own home if this is possible for me.' The standards set out important characteristics of how care providers should design, deliver and improve their services. Care at home providers will want to review the draft standards carefully.

The consultation closes on 22 January 2017, see: UKHCA has submitted a response on behalf of UKHCA members. Consultation document.
