The Care Inspectorate and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland will inspect adult support and protection services in a number of partnership areas across Scotland. Healthcare Improvement Scotland will also be involved in this exercise. This work will start in September 2017. This is the first time any of the Scottish scrutiny bodies have scrutinised adult support and protection. The adult protection partnerships selected for scrutiny reflect the diverse geography and demography of Scotland. These partnerships were formally notified on 20 July 2017.
