Meeting the challenges of SCSWIS

The Care Inspectorate provide assurance and protection for people who use care, social work and child protection services in Scotland. Meeting the National Care Standards and the regulatory framework of the Care Inspectorate requires that health and social care providers are carrying out services that are of the highest quality.

Achieving compliance with the Public Services Reform Scotland Act 2010 , the National Care Standards and all updates issued by the Scottish Care Commission is a daunting task for the busy care manager. QCS is the leading management system that relieves the compliance burden headache so that you can concentrate on delivering excellence in care.

By adding QCS software to your care management toolkit, policy compliance will be easily managed and maintained with every document accessible and updatable with the latest SCSWIS policies – 24/7.

Ongoing SCSWIS Compliance Support

SCSWIS inspectors can visit your social care service at any time, any day and not necessarily with advance notice, so having the QCS on your side will help you be prepared for SCSWIS inspections by managing your compliance policy documentation safety, securely and compliant with the latest policy updates.

Key system policies for Scottish social care include detailed care plans, admission risk assessments and safeguarding arrangements. The protocols around daily living have special regard for the dignity and human rights of the service user and our system offers the flexibility for you to upload your key internal documents to your live online account, allowing you to maintain everything complying with these protocols in one place.

Case Studies

Many of our clients choose to go ‘on the record’, telling the story of why they selected QCS to solve their problems and how it has helped them to take control of compliance.
