Fundamental Standards of Care Training Packages

As a provider, registered manager, or member of care staff operating a regulated activity, you must ensure your care and service operates in accordance with the fundamental standards set out in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014.

When the CQC inspects your service, they will speak to all staff and assess their understanding of these fundamental standards. It is therefore critical that all staff are clear about what their responsibilities are.
