Standards of care & regulation of care services in Scotland

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of how some care services were regulated prior to April 2002 (when a new non-departmental body, the Scottish Commission for the Regulation of Care (the Care Commission), assumed responsibility for regulating care services).

In particular, the review focuses on the nature of the evidence gathered and the standards applied. The research also identifies some challenges for the new process of regulation.
