Each year, we ask services to complete an annual return. This gives us important information that helps us plan, inform and carry out our inspections. We also share some of the information with other organisations, such as the Scottish Social Services Council and the Scottish Government, and we use it to produce several statistical publications that you can view on our website.
Annual returns opened online on Friday 3 January and are closing soon, on Friday 14 February.
The annual return is available for services to complete through our online eForms system. All service types must complete their annual returns electronically. You can access this here: https://eforms.careinspectorate.com/
All services registered before 1 October 2019 must complete an annual return. If your service registered on or after 1 October 2019, you should still try to complete an annual return this year. Although it’s not mandatory, we will still be able to use any information supplied. The information you put in will automatically appear in the next annual return and you will then only need to enter any information that has changed.
Remember – even if your service is inactive, you must submit an annual return.
If you have any questions about the annual returns, please read our frequently asked questions here http://bit.ly/AnnualReturn-FAQ or if you need advice you can call us on 0345 600 9527.
