Scottish Government Safe Staffing Legislation – Engagement Events

The Scottish Government has taken the decision at this stage to extend the Safer Staffing Legislation, which had initially been envisaged as relating solely to nursing, to the wider staffing of health and social care.

This decision, upon which Scottish Care is asking for greater clarification, is likely to have far reaching impacts on social care providers.

We have been alerted to engagement events to be held in the next few weeks and are keen that care home and home care/housing support providers are as well represented at these events as possible.  These are being advertised on a first come first served basis and we would encourage members to attend these as a matter of some priority.

Please use the three Eventbrite links to the engagement events below to register:


Aberdeen event – 5 February 2018


Glasgow event – 7 February 2018


Edinburgh event – 8 February 2018
