National Care sTandards Consultation Easy Read

2 women with speech bubbles

We would like to ask you some questions about the National Care Standards. This is called a consultation.

Elderly women standing with sheet of paper

The National Care Standards were created to help people understand what they should expect from care services.

Group of people standing

They also help services understand the standards that they should deliver.

Group of people round a table

We believe that the new National Care Standards should focus on people's human rights.

Human rights are the rights and freedoms that everyone should have. This means things like the right to life and the right to feel safe.

We want services to understand and respect human rights.

People who use services should be involved in the planning and delivery of services. This will make sure that their human rights are understood and respected.

Man and women shaking hands

The National Care Standards should make it easier for services to work together.

Women reading the National Care Standards

People using and working in these services should be able to understand the standards easily.

Man holding a checklist

We believe that the new standards should show how services should be run.

They should also show how services can keep getting better.

At the moment there are 23 different sets of National Care Standards.

We think that the National Care Standards need to be based on people's human rights. We need to make sure the standards meet people's needs just now. We also have to think of the future.

Nurse and patient

We have 23 sets of standards. It would be good if we could reduce this number. We also have to look at certain areas of support that people should expect from different services. We would like to know what your thoughts on developing a set of standards for certain areas of care.

2e. Do you agree that sets of individual standards should be developed for certain areas of care and need?

Please answer Yes, No or Don't Know:

Women writing

We would like to know how you think the new standards should be written. Some people have already given us some views about how they should be written. Some of these people thought that the standards should set out what services should provide. Other people said the standards should set out the rights of people using services and what support they are able to get.

3. What are your thoughts about how the standards should be written?

Man looking through a magnifying glass

The Care Inspectorate and Health Improvement Scotland make sure that services are being delivered properly. They have standards which services must work towards. The way they check that services are meeting the standards is being looked at.
