An update regarding the redevelopment of the National Care Standards.

This week commencing 24 October marks the launch of the Scottish Government’s public consultation on the new National Care Standards.

This will present a meaningful opportunity for those who use, provide and work in health and social care services to contribute towards dialogue on the National Care Standards.

As part of the consultation there will be a series of engagement events across the country to help people understand how the standards have been developed and what they will actually mean for people who use care and support services.

A series of short films will be launched to help explain what the standards will mean for people and awareness will be raised and promoted via social media to encourage as many people as possible to participate in the consultation.

The consultation asks for people’s views on what the standards should be called in the longer-term, meanwhile for the purposes of the consultation, they will be known as the new ‘National Health and Social Care Standards’.
