This report outlines the results of a series of stakeholder engagement exercises designed to canvass views on Minimum Care Standards for Nursing Homes and the proposed amendments. Nursing home providers, managers of registered nursing home and trust care managers took part in the exercises. Delegates were asked to discuss the positive and challenging aspects of the current standards; examine the format, style, language and tone of the standards and indicate their preferences for how a revised version might look; and identify the positive and challenging aspects of the new standards and whether they felt the standards would be achievable and effective. The draft revised standards set out the requirements for registration and inspection of nursing homes providers by the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority to ensure a consistency of approach throughout Northern Ireland and ensure that residents and their families and carers, service providers and commissioners have a clear understanding of the minimum standards of care they can expect to receive and provide.

The need for an inspection of Social Care Support Services for Carers of Older People in Northern Ireland was identified during the consultation on the former Social Services Inspectorate's inspection programme for 2002-2005. The inspection continued into 2006. The reports arising from the inspection identify many areas of good practice and good quality work undertaken by highly motivated staff. The reports have sought to identify both what is working well and where improvements are still needed. The reports, with their recommendations to Boards and Trusts and their partner Agencies, together with the draft standards and other initiatives from DHSSPS, provide a clear and coherent framework for the future provision of robust, high quality support for carers. Support for carers is a central policy objective for the Department. The final Standards for Adult Social Care Support Services for Carers were issued in July 2008 and will complement other published standards with regard to practice and social care service provision. The standards will be of use to Commissioners and Providers of social care support services for carers; social care workers; regulatory and training providers and most importantly to carers and their representative groups to inform them of what they can and should reasonably expect from social care support services and from the organisations and practitioners commissioning and providing them.
