A new era of care regulation starts today

A new era of care regulation begins today (Thursday).

From this morning, a wide range of previously unregulated agencies in the Island will be subject to inspections from social care chiefs.

The changes will apply to both voluntary groups and businesses offering private health and social care services, including adult day care centres, fostering and adoption agencies, offender accommodation services and independent medical clinics.

Social Care Minister Chris Robertshaw says the new system of state regulation is long overdue.
