    Created: 07/06/2018

    The Health and Care Committee issued a call for views on 06 June 2018. This will run until 01 August 2018.

    The Committee is seeking views on the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill. Specifically the Committee is seeking views on the following questions:

    1. Do you think the Bill will achieve its policy objectives?
    2. What are the key strengths of:
      • Part 2 of the Bill?
      • Part 3 of the Bill?
    3. What are the key weaknesses of:
      • Part 2 of the Bill?
      • Part 3 of the Bill?
    4. What differences, not covered above, might the Bill make? (for example: will the Bill have any unintended consequences, will it ensure that staffing levels are safe, does the Bill take account of health and social care integration, how are 'safe and high-quality' assured/guaranteed by the Bill?)
