Care Commission reports

Posted on February 1st, by editor in CT Extra. No Comments

In the Scottish Care Commission’s latest, and final, Quality of Care Review released in March, the Care Commission says more than a quarter of all care services across the country have received the highest grades following their inspections over the past year, while only a small minority are performing below acceptable standards.

The report provides a comprehensive overview of Scotland’s care sector, and will also be offered to the country’s new care regulator Social Work and Social Care in Scotland (SCSWIS) to use as a benchmark for future regulation of care services once the organisation is launched in April 2011.
David Wiseman, the Care Commission’s acting chief executive said the Quality of Care Review clearly showed that the overall quality of care in Scotland was good.
“In some cases, the standards of care provided are excellent and we have been greatly encouraged by the amount of good practice we have come across, said Mr Wiseman.
“Since we published our last national overview report ‘The Quality of Care Services in Scotland, 2007’, we have found that Scotland continues to develop innovative services that help improve the quality of life for people in care every day.
