Date lodged: 24 May 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what action it will take to monitor the impact of the 2016-17 National Care Home Contract settlement for any negative consequences.

Answered by: Shona Robison 6 June 2016

The Scottish Government is committed to improving the quality of care in Scotland and we work closely with COSLA, Scottish Care, Coalition of Care and support Providers in Scotland and other key stakeholders in order to do this.

As part of this partnership approach the Scottish Government is a part of the National Contingency Planning Group, which is chaired by COSLA, and works with stakeholders in identifying potential risks which could lead to the disruption of adult social care provision in Scotland.
