A reminder from the Care Inspectorate for services to submit their annual return
Each year the Care Inspectorate ask services to complete an annual return questionnaire. This informs the Care Inspectorate about the structure and operation of services and helps the organisation to plan, inform and carry out inspections.
The questionnaire also gives insight into the overall state of care in Scotland, which is then shared with other organisations, such as the Scottish Government and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
Annual returns are available online at eforms.careinspectorate.com between 6 January and 17 February 2017.
Supporting information on the annual returns can be found at careinspectorate.com and answers to frequently asked questions under ‘Annual returns’ in the ‘Professionals’ section. If an answer to a question can’t be found there, services can call the Care Inspectorate eForms helpdesk on 0345 600 9527.
If a service was registered on or after 1 October 2016, they should try to complete an annual return this year. Although it’s not mandatory for these services, any information supplied will be used by the Care Inspectorate and the organisations the information is shared with with.
Please note that inactive services must submit an annual return.
Services can log into their Care Inspectorate eForms account from any computer connected to the internet. If they need help accessing their annual return, they can call the eForms helpdesk on 0345 600 9527.
