National Care Standards
Care services have to provide quality care as set out in legislation and the National Care Standards. If services aren't meeting the right standards, the Care Inspectorate will make recommendations, requirements and can even take enforcement action when necessary.
The Scottish Government, along with the Care Inspectorate and Healthcare Improvement Scotland, are conducting a review of the National Care Standards to make sure service users' needs continue to be met. You can find out more about this review at the National Care Standards Review website.
