The Care Inspectorate has today published a report on its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report is part of the Care Inspectorate’s submission to the Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee. The committee is looking into the work of the Care Inspectorate in relation to adult social care as well as its role during, and response to, the COVID-19 pandemic.

The committee will take oral evidence from the Care Inspectorate on Tuesday 25 August.

Peter Macleod Chief Executive of the Care Inspectorate said: “Today’s report sets out the detail of what we have been doing to support care services and people who experience care during the most challenging of circumstances.

“It illustrates what we found and what will do in future to support the social care sector as it continues to respond to the virus.

“COVID-19 has impacted care homes for older people disproportionately to other care service types and accordingly, this report has a particular focus on care homes for older people.”
