In a few weeks’ time, we will ask for your views on draft overarching principles that will apply to all health and social care settings across Scotland. Consultation on the principles will take place during November.

We would encourage you to involve as many individual service users, carers and staff as possible in the consultation from our organisations and the networks we work with.

After the principles have been agreed, the next stage will be to draft generic and specific standards for health and social care services that are registered and inspected.
