The Scottish Government is currently drafting legislation which will focus on safe staffing in health and social care services.
A reference group with members from health and social services is contributing to the draft Bill, including the parts of the legislation that relate to safe staffing in social care services. The SSSC is a member of the group, along with other social service and health organisations.
The Scottish Government carried out a consultation about the proposed legislation last year. You can read the independent analysis of the findings here. Following this consultation and discussion with the Bill Reference Group the Scottish Government is planning three engagement events to provide stakeholders with a further opportunity to discuss and contribute to the development of the legislation.
We would encourage people from the social service sector to attend and contribute to these discussions.
