Organisations and members of the public across Scotland are being asked to respond to a consultation on Scotlandís National Care Standards, which covers services such as nurseries and childminders, care homes for older people, housing support services, hospice care and independent hospitals.

The consultation sets out a range of human rights-based proposals for developing new standards that improve the quality of care and protect vulnerable people. These standards will be used by national inspection watchdogs, Care Inspectorate and Healthcare Improvement Scotland, to measure the quality of services and ensure people are being looked after in accordance with their rights. Consultation to 17 September 2014.
