How we support improvement

The Care Inspectorate is a national scrutiny body which supports and drives improvement. We regulate around 12,000 care services to ensure the quality of care meets the highest standards. Where improvement is needed, we support services, providers, and partnerships to make changes that improve the quality of care.
