Care Homes: Inspections

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 22 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will place a copy of the Commission for Social Care Inspection's code of practice for inspectors of care homes in the Library. (196656)

We have been informed by the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) that it does not have a specific code of practice for inspectors. CSCI issues a set of employment standards which apply to all staff, not just inspectors. There are eight standards:

anti-fraud and corruption policy;

corporate conduct;

employee relations;

gifts and hospitality;

information and communication technology security policy;

organisational change;

redundancy policy; and

valuing diversity.

Copies of the Standards have been placed in the Library.
