In February 2021 the Scottish Government published an Independent Review of Adult Social Care. The review recommended improvements to adult social care in Scotland, including the creation of a National Care Service.
In response to this, the Scottish Government has proposed a new bill which would establish a National Care Service. This new Bill has now went to the Scottish Parliament for consideration and approval.
The National Care Service would be responsible for social care throughout Scotland, and proposes changes to how social care is delivered in Scotland.
More information about the National Care Service can be found here:
