Under the duties placed upon them by the Coronavirus (Scotland) (No.2) Act, the CI report to the Scottish Parliament fortnightly on their inspections activity.
In order to robustly assess the arrangements put in place by care services to respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic, these inspections place a particular focus on infection prevention and control, personal protective equipment and staffing in care settings. This enables a focus on these areas while also considering the overall quality of care and people’s wellbeing. The reports laid before Parliament are in addition to the normal process of publishing full inspection reports, which will be published in due course. The report laid before the Scottish Parliament on 8 July is here.
