We have just published Improving Care in Scotland: What the Care Inspectorate did in 2012/13. It is the first time this information has been published. 

Each year we collect lots of information about the care sector in Scotland. Much of this statistical information is available in our annual reports and accounts. 

This information informs our work for the forthcoming years along with the work of others in the sector.   

This review is different. As a quality report, it provides a snapshot of what our 600 staff have been doing throughout the year. This publication tries to tell the human story behind the statistical figures.

In regulation and inspection, it is our responsibility to ensure that the most vulnerable people in our society receive the best care possible.
