Visiting Guidance for Adult Care Homes

The Commission has written to the Clinical and Professional Advisory Group for Care Homes in Scotland, setting out a range of human rights considerations that should be taken into account in developing guidance on visiting for adult care homes in the context of COVID-19.

It is also an issue which has been repeatedly raised through our impact monitoring work on social care throughout the pandemic of recent months.
