We have been alerted that persons purporting to be from the Care Inspectorate have contacted a number of providers to ask for the names and contact details, including addresses, of staff members.

 We would not ask for this information by telephone. If you receive a call of this type, we advise that you report the incident to the police. If you are in any doubt about the identity of an inspector or other person, you can contact us on 0345 600 9527. Providers can also check the identity of inspectors by logging on to the secure e-forms system
