Social Services Inspectorate
All our inspection reports are published. Our reports are aimed at three audiences:
- the public which uses and finances the service;
- the Board members, Health and Social Services Trust members and other bodies with responsibility for the service provided;
- the professional or other service managers.
Clear statements are made in the reports on what is good about the service being inspected and what needs to be improved.
The published reports when issued are sent to the Chief Executives of Health and Social Services Boards, Trusts and other management bodies for distribution to members of Boards and staff of the various agencies. We provide summaries of our reports which are written primarily for the public, users and carers. These summaries are also distributed to the Boards, Trusts and voluntary organisations with an interest in the inspection and from these sources the public, users and carers may obtain a report. You can get copies of the reports directly from the Social Services Inspectorate at telephone number (02890) 520708.
