The Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Act 2019 (not yet enacted) was passed in 2019. The Care Inspectorate has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to lead on a national quality improvement programme to support care services in preparation for the enactment of the legislation.

Our vision

Working in collaboration with people who experience care, relatives, representation groups and other key stakeholders, our vision of the programme is to: 

‘Ensure that in care services in Scotland there are the right people, in the right place, with the right skills at the right time working to ensure people experience the best health and care outcomes.’ 

We regularly publish programme updates and resources on The Hub.
