The Care Inspectorate has laid before the Scottish Parliament a report of inspections it has carried out in care services in the past two weeks. 

The first of these new reports, to be laid before Parliament every two weeks, covers inspections completed between 27 May 2020 and 5 June 2020. 

In order to robustly assess the arrangements put in place by care services to respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Care Inspectorate inspections place a particular focus on infection prevention and control, personal protective equipment and staffing in care settings. 

This enables inspectors to focus on these areas while also considering the overall quality of care and impact on people’s wellbeing.  

The Parliamentary report is in addition to the normal process of publishing full inspection reports.   

For each care service inspected, inspection reports will be published by the Care Inspectorate in due course.
