Our new everyday name

From now on our everyday name is the "Care Inspectorate".  Nicola Sturgeon, Cabinet Secretary for Health, agreed and reported this to Parliament this afternoon.

Our formal name, Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland (SCSWIS) is set out in legislation so will not change. However, in all our day-to-day business, from today, we will be known as the "Care Inspectorate".
