Review of Code of Practice for Employers of Social Care Workers 07/11/2016

The Northern Ireland Social Care Council has launched a review of its Code of Practice for Employers of Social Care Workers, following its earlier review of the Code for Social Workers and Social Care Workers. NISCC has updated the Code for Employers and is seeking views on draft revised standards. The changes are summarised on pages 5 and 6 of the consultation and include:

  • Changing the name of the Code to 'Standards for Employers of Social Workers and Social Care Workers';
  • A new overarching standard on leadership, and one relating to duty of candour. More emphasis on practice that is 'values-led':
  • New standards around employer responsibilities to ensure that their workforce is registered with NISCC;
  • Strengthened standards around raising concerns about resource or operational difficulties impeding delivery of care and co-operating with NISCC investigations.

To comment, see: UKHCA is considering a response on behalf of members. To send us your views, email by 16 December 2016. The consultation formally closes on 30 December 2016.
