P2. An introduction to the Standards by the Care Inspectorate

In this session, there was a strong impetus to clarify what the role of the Care Inspectorate could and should be in contributing to the learning and development of these meetings. In light of this, Henry Mathias – Strategic Lead on the Health and Social Care Standards – agreed to be the Care Inspectorate representative for the sessions in Perth and Kinross going forward. Meeting 2 was a perfect opportunity to introduce Henry to the group and for members to ask him questions related to the use of the new standards within future inspections. A summary of our learning from this session is highlighted in the infographic, above.
