QCS is awarded Gold Tier Preferred Supplier status by Scottish Care

QCS is awarded Gold Tier Preferred Supplier status by Scottish Care

Scottish Care, which represents over 400 private, not for profit and charitable social care providers in Scotland, has awarded Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) with Gold Tier Preferred Supplier status.

QCS, the UK’s leading provider of content, guidance and standards for the social care sector, was awarded enhanced status in recognition of its outstanding content contribution to the independent care sector during the pandemic. During the crisis, for example, QCS reacted to the Care Inspectorate’s decision to introduce a new inspection framework by creating an easy-to-use mock inspection kit and satisfaction surveys, which reflected the new care standards.

Senga Currie, QCS’s Head of Care Development (Scotland), said, “We’re delighted to have achieved Gold Supplier status. We have been working hard for a number of years to provide outstanding up-to-date content, which not only meets the expectations of our providers but exceeds them. However, QCS is keen to provide even greater support to providers in the future, and achieving Gold Tier Status shows that we are on the right path to helping them achieve excellence.”

Donald Macaskill, the Chief Executive Officer of Scottish Care, added, “We're very excited to give our social care providers the opportunity to work even more closely with QCS. The content that QCS provides has proved transformative. We look forward to continuing working with QCS to provide our members with help and support in compliance, to enable them to deliver an even higher standard of care to those they look after.”
