Thanks to input from members, SFHA, in partnership with the Housing Support Enabling Unit, submitted a response to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the draft Health and Social Care National Care Standards.

The consultation ran from 28 October 2016 until the 22 January 2017 and sought views on the draft standards that were produced after the five overarching principles were approved by Scottish Ministers in February 2016:

  • Dignity and respect

  • Compassion

  • Be included

  • Responsive care and support

  • Responsive care and support

  • Wellbeing

The new standards will come into force from Spring 2018 and will provide a framework for registration and inspection of individually registered care and health services. The will replace the 23 sets of standards produced for different types of registered care introduced in 2002.

 Zhan McIntyre Policy, SFHA Lead, said:

“This has been an important consultation which reinforces that the needs and rights of service users are at the heart of housing.

“I would like to thank SFHA members for contributing to the joint response from SFHA and HSEU.”
