Parliamentary Briefing - Stage 3 debate Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill

01 May 2019
Ahead of the Stage 3 debate on the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill, which takes place on Thursday 2 May, read why the RCN supports the principles of the Bill and about the six tests that provide a solid framework to support safe and effective care.
The Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill presents an opportunity to get the right number of staff, with the right skills in the right place so that patients and residents in care homes receive safe and effective care. The RCN welcomes many of the amendments lodged ahead of stage 3, which it feels would further improve and strengthen the Bill. We have welcomed the steps taken to ensure the Bill takes a multidisciplinary approach and have worked with colleagues from other disciplines to support this.
