The Care Standards Act 200 replaces the Registered Homes Act 1984. It provides for the registration authorities to be the newly created National Care Standards Commission for England, and the National Assembly for Wales. This comparative guide sets out the new requirements under the Care Standards Act Parts I and II alongside the previous requirements of the Registered Homes Act with a clear explanation of the changes. Note is made where there was no previous equivalent, or where previous requirements have been removed. Some requirements under both the previous and the new regime are set out in regulations but this guide focuses on the Acts. The sections of the Act are set out in the same order as the Care Standards Act Parts I and II. Précis of each section are provided in boxes.

These service standards address the responsibilities and requirements of all the organisations and individuals who contribute to the provision of quality social care in the three high security hospitals for people with mental health problems: Ashworth, Broadmoor and Rampton. The document should be read alongside the 'Review of social work in the high security hospitals' (the Lewis report). The standards are divided into six free standing sections, each addressing the responsibilities and requirements of one organisation (the Hospital Social Care Service, the Hospital itself, the local council providing and managing the social care service, the local councils with responsibilities for patients, the local councils in whose areas the hospitals are situated and the Probation Service).

The purpose of this inspection was to inspect and report on the service received by, and outcomes for, users who are compulsorily detained under the Mental Health Act. It took place at a time when the Mental Health Act was under review, and the Government had published its new strategy for mental health. The strategy was followed by a National Service Framework for Mental Health, which sets standards for all agencies to achieve greater consistency across the country. During the inspection information was gathered from assessments of almost one thousand people under the Mental Health Act. It took place at a time when mental health services were being re-assessed in the light of the new national standards for mental health and this report is timely in helping local councils to evaluate services.
