Latest Information

Here at the Network we seek out all the latest and most useful information from across South Lanarkshire. We want all our Carers to have access to any Carer related information we are able to source, that will help them to know what services and supports are available in their communities.

The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 states an information and advice service must be made available to Carers. If you are looking to find anything out you can use the links here, print off the leaflets, click through to partner webpages or you can of course call us and talk.

When you use services there are Health and Social Care Standards that we should all expect from health, social care or social work. These standards seek better outcomes for everyone, making sure everyone is treated with respect and dignity and our human rights are upheld.

 

The Standards are underpinned by five principles; dignity and respect, compassion, be included, responsive care and support and wellbeing.

Health and Social Care Standards

Have a look at the Health and Social Care Standards that say what people’s health, social care and support should be like.

The standards are:

  • I experience high quality care and support that is right for me
  • I am fully involved in all decisions about my care and support
  • I have confidence in the people who support and care for me
  • I have confidence in the organisation providing my care and support
  • I experience a high quality environment if the organisation provides the premises
