We’re undertaking regular engagement with our members and industry partners to gain expert insights. 

Stage 1 Consultation – Underlying Principles

Scottish Care is looking to consult with our membership on the efficacy the Scottish Government’s   underlying principles of ethical commissioning and procurement.

Your insights will assist our reporting to the Scottish Government, as part of the design and implementation of commissioning procedures under a National Care Service. We aim to identify areas for improvement and develop a framework for ethical commissioning that truly meets the needs of the independent sector.

Of particular interest to Scottish Care are the applicability of these principles to your experiences throughout the commissioning process:

      • The outcomes used by commissioning agencies in your locality, and their relevance to the care delivered by your service.
      • The commissioning process: its duration, ease, and the available official mechanisms you have to engage in dialogue with commissioning agencies.
      • The key stakeholders within HSCP’s and other commissioning agencies, that you require strong relationships with to secure the best arrangements for your service.

Please follow the provided links to access each principle’s respective questionnaire.
