Care Inspectorate


.

Who They Are:

.

The Scottish Government set up the Care Inspectorate to provide assurance and protection for people who use care, social work and child protection services in Scotland.

.

The Care Inspectorate is an independent body which provides information about care services in Scotland, their inspection reports and their current grades so that you can make an informed decision when choosing a care home.

.

At Bertinaley Care Ltd, we share our care gradings with you, as we feel this will enable you to make the right choice for yourself or a loved one. Each specific report is available for download on our individual ‘Find a Care Home’ pages.


What They Do:

.

It's their job to regulate and inspect care, social work and child protection services so that:

  • vulnerable people are safe
  • the quality of these services improves
  • people know the standards they have a right to expect
  • we can report publicly on the quality of these services across Scotland
  • we can support and encourage the development of better ways of delivering these services.

They carry out this work in a number of ways and in partnership with various stakeholders such as Education Scotland, COSLA, Scottish Care, and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) for example.
