Scottish regulator opts for grading system

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

Care services in Scotland are to be graded by the Scottish regulator – the Care Commission – under a system which awards different scores in different areas, unlike the star rating system adopted by the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) in England.

The Care Commission says the move is designed to make it easier for members of the public to check the quality and performance of a care service and make a better informed choice about whether to use it – or not.
