The new Fitness to Practise model for regulation will now be applied in all assessments of a registrant’s ability to practise safely and competently in social care services.
These changes offer a wider range of actions for NISCC to apply in cases where registered workers have not met the standard expected by NISCC for their conduct or practice. This allows NISCC to apply a sanction that is more proportionate to each particular case. It will also streamline the regulatory and investigative processes, minimising the impact on all parties involved in the case.
Information sessions will be held over the coming months around NI. Details will be shared through NISCC website, social media and e-News.
