Regulation burden to be eased in Scotland

Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The Care Commission in Scotland has made changes to the way it gives feedback from inspections, following suggestions from people who provide care services. Until the new arrangements were brought in, local authorities often carried out their own reviews of care services, and some of this work duplicated that done by the Care Commission, resulting in an increased burden on care providers. To help ease the problem, the Care Commission now says it is happy for local authority contract compliance officers to attend feedback sessions where care providers are given an initial impression of the findings of inspections. Although local authority representatives will not take an active part in the sessions, they will be able to gather information about the strengths and weakness of individual services, and discover how any problems are likely to be resolved.
