On 1 September 2020, the First Minister announced that there would be an Independent Review of Adult Social Care in Scotland as part of the Programme for Government. The Review was chaired by Derek Feeley, who was supported by an Advisory Panel of Scottish and international experts.
The principal aim of the review was to recommend improvements to adult social care in Scotland, primarily in terms of the outcomes achieved by and with people who use services, their carers and families, and the experience of people who work in adult social care. The review took a human-rights based approach.
The report for Independent Review of Adult Social Care in Scotland has been published by the Scottish Government today (Wednesday 3 February) alongside a short film.
