Consultation on the New National Health and Social Care Standards

Closed 23 Jan 2017

Opened 28 Oct 2016


Following on from the consultation of the National Care Standards in 2014, the next phase of the National Care Standards Review is to develop a set of Standards linked to the overarching Principles which were approved by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport in February 2016.

Why We Are Consulting

We would welcome your views on the specific questions we have asked in the consultation paper. The purpose of this consultation will be to gather information from those with an interest in Health and Social Care and to use the responses in the development of the specific and general standards.
