This seventh edition of the Care Standards Legislation Handbook collects in one place and presents in fully updated form all the legislation most needed by those involved in the workings of the regulatory systems, and the appeals processes, for care services in England and Wales.
The work has been substantially revised and expanded to provide an extensive and updated library containing the Health and Social Care Act 2008, The Care Quality Commission (Membership) Regulations 2008 and the Tribunal Procedure (Upper Tribunal) Rules 2008. Also included are other key statutory provisions, all relevant recent statutory instruments and Rules of the General Social Care Council.
Care Standards Legislation Handbook is an invaluable resource for all practitioners from the many and varied disciplines working in the field of care standards who need to understand the principles and duties underpinning the care regime.
