Scotland prepares for the staffing act, due to come into force on 1 April

Scottish regulators have organised countdown webinars and regional face-to-face events to support care providers with the requirements of the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Act, which comes into force on 1 April 2024.

The Act is applicable to all health and care staff in Scotland and ensures that care services in Scotland offer appropriate staffing and skills to deliver the best health and care outcomes.

 The Care Inspectorate’s Safe Staffing programme hub offers further information and access to booking.

The safe staffing Act does not prescribe staffing levels but points to the use of personal plans and a range of health and wellbeing care outcomes to identify the support required from staff during the day and night.
