We publish two main types of information for care providers.
1. Provider handbooks
Our provider handbooks explain what we look for when we inspect services. They also set out how we do our job – from registering providers to carrying out inspections, publishing ratings and taking enforcement action.
2. Guidance on meeting regulations
Regulations for providers and registered managers include requirements about the fitness of organisations and the people that work for them, as well as fundamental standards of care.
For all providers
