Social care quality standards

The NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC) will use NICE’s methods and processes to develop social care guidance for NICE. NICE will use the guidance as a basis for its quality standards for social care.

NICE quality standards are a concise set of statements designed to drive and measure improvements in the quality of care. They are not mandatory; they are intended for use in conjunction with the frameworks and regulation already in place, providing practical support to help drive up the quality of adult and children's care.
