National Care Service: equality impact assessment

Equality impact assessment for the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill.

Monitoring and Review

The National Care Service will be governed by a set of principles that will clarify that social care, social work and community health services are essential for the realisation of fundamental human rights and that the National Care Service has equality, non-discrimination and the dignity of the individual at its heart.

The design of the NCS will integrate equality impact monitoring and evaluation into its framework from the outset. We believe it is essential to ensure that any identified positive and negative impacts will be closely monitored and evaluated and relevant information and data gathered to continually assess the potential positive and negative impacts of the service.
