Report on inquiry into the regulation of care for older people (3rd report, session 4)

The purpose of the inquiry was to investigate whether there were any particular weak points in the regulatory regime of care for older people and whether safeguards were sufficiently robust.

In the wake of high profile events in the care sector such as the collapse of Southern Cross Healthcare Group and closure of the Elsie Inglis Nursing Home following the death of a resident, the Committee considered that it was timely to consider the regulatory system for social care in Scotland and conduct some post-legislative scrutiny in this area.
