POLICY: Amber Warning

01 March 2015
An RCN Scotland briefing on care of older people in hospitals in Scotland
This RCN Scotland briefing, based on our analysis of 35 inspection reports, found that the pressures on Scotland’s health and social care system are compromising fundamental standards of care for older people in hospital.  Despite national improvement work, local health boards are struggling to make improvements and are not learning enough from each other or between hospitals within the same health board area.
If you have any comments or would like to find out more information then please contact the RCN Scotland Policy team by emailing them at policyscotland@rcn.org.uk or by filling in the attached feedback form and sending it to Policy, RCN Scotland, 42 South Oswald Road, Edinburgh, EH9 2HH
