Minister issues report into Social Care Act implementation

Rebecca Evans, minister for social services and public health, has released an update report on the implementation of the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016.

In a statement to the Welsh Assembly, the minister explained that the report highlighted key changes to workforce-related regulations including:

  • Clarifying the circumstances in which student social care workers must be registered.
  • Clarifying that a ‘finding of fact’ will not be made in interim order proceedings, whether before an interim orders panel or a fitness to practise panel.
  • Amending the constitution of panel regulations to provide more clarity on who may not serve as a panel member.
